The best DDR3 ram you can get thats not going to cost you your soul is a 6GB Kit of OCZ PLATINUMS. Cas7 and you can find them for $99 at Amazon.com.

Note though that that board only makes use of a Dual Channel set up, so you would have to find the 4GB equivalent.

There is some G. Skill's on newegg for around $100 which are also very good 1600 ram. I have the corsair dominators but I can't tell you too much as I am rma'ing my board at the moment.
