What type of RAM should I use?

by gish11 / March 16, 2014 7:41 AM PDT

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock H87 Pro4 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit)

This is my build, i just have to decide on what type of RAM to use. I was thinking like an 8 GB ddr3-1600, but i just didnt know what was best. I want to play games and browse and stuff like that. It obviously needs to be compatible with the motherboard and would be nice to be OC capable.
