The Intel has the best performance, but you have to pay a little more for it.

If I was shopping on a budget I would go with these.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

If I was slightly more concerned about performance but budget was still a factor I would go with these.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

If price was of no concern then I would buy these.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-8GBXH

I would go with the second set, the Ripjaws X Cas 8 modules.

The Corsair Vengeance memory kits are also good, I have a 8GB (2x4GB) set of DDR3 1600 Cas 8 myself. But the heatspreaders are really to tall and they interfere with some heatsinks, plus they are cheaply made (the heatspreaders). If I could do it all over again I would of bought a kit of Ripjaws.

depends on what are the rest of your parts.
650w is enough for majority of people.
