Default Building a new computer

I'm planning to building a computer and I'm having a little trouble choosing ram as I've always bought premade PC's and building them up to something decent.

I plan to use the listed

CM Storm Trooper Full Tower
Ultra LSP750 750-Watt Power Supply
MSI GeForce GTX 780 Twin Frozr Video Card
Intel Core i7-4770K Processor
Gigabyte GA-G1.Sniper 5 Z87 Motherboard
Ram ?
Corsair Hydro Series H110 Liquid Cooler

any advice on the current set up would be greatly appreciated.

What is your budget? IO assume at the price of your computer, $135 shipped would be fine.. I would buy these: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-16GBXL - Newegg.com

They are very good and well complement your build well.

Was hoping to stay within the 50 - 100$ mark if possible, only want 8gb

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-8GBXH - Newegg.com That is the best you can get in that price range i'd say.

wow stop, why buy 1333mhz? get 1600mhz at least. with todays chips the latency is less important.

1333 is a little bit better performance wise. Sure it looses a little tiny bit of speed, but you don't even notice it. 1333 is over all better then 1600. That's why I chose 1333 for him.

Personally, I like to get RAM that at least matches the native speed of the controller, in the case of the 4770K, it's 1600 MT/s.

I was kind of thinking the same but my knowledge is little low when it comes to ram other than knowing the different kinds of mhz.

what would you recommended to buy?

You can't go wrong with G.Skill 1600 or Corsair 1600. If you're planning on overclocking, and based on your motherboard/CPU combo, I'm guessing you are, I would get 2000/2133 RAM.
