New system build

First let me say that I'm not sure that I'm in the right category, so I'll keep it short for now, and if I am in the right category I can give more details in my next reply. I'm upgrading my MOBO, CPU, and MEM. I have chosen the mobo and cpu but have yet to decide on the memory. I would like some input on my choices for the mobo/cpu combo, and some help deciding on the memory that is best for the mobo/cpu.Thanks for any input.

MOBO: ASUS M5A88-M

CPU: ASUS FX-4170 4.2ghz Quad core

MEM: ??

Motherboard Memory Specifications

This will be able to give you an idea of what memory your motherboard can handle, so you may want to base you the memory you purchase around these specifications.

Please make sure you download the latest chipset drivers etc. BSODs can be common with new builds, since people forget or don't fully update all their drivers.
