Question RAM Help

I'm building a new rig soon and I need to pick my ram. I don't know much about what's good and whatnot but I'm going to be gaming heavily, my CPU will be an i7 2600k and my graphics a radeon 6970 2GB. I'm looking for about 12GB of ram. My price range is about 150$ and no more. Can anyone look on this website and find me a good product to buy? Newegg.ca - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! Thanks!

The motherboard is pretty much the sole indicator of the type of RAM that you can buy. What is the make and model of your motherboard?

Looks like good stuff. So what exactly does make RAM good? What sets this one aside from the cheaper ones?

RAM has a few different differentiators but I usually just go by name brand and corsair is good RAM
