I would get these:

G.Skill - G.SKILL F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL Ripjaws PC3-12800 4GB 2X2GB DDR3-1600... - F312800CL9D4GBRL - Powered by PriceCanada.com

Assuming you're getting it at ncix, with pricematch $99.

If you can price match bundle deals then ok. But if not then no. I know its only a few $$$ but up to you. Take a look:

Corsair - CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)... - CMX4GX3M2A1600C7 - Powered by PriceCanada.com

Gigabyte - Gigabyte P55A-UD3P ATX LGA1156 P55 DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI GBLAN... - GAP55AUD3P - Powered by PriceCanada.com

What do you means by standard speed , the speed who will match your board speed ? you multiply the blk ( 133 ) * 8 = 1066 but I will not get 1066 memory, go at least to 1333, they probably the same price.

I mean what is the normal size for DDR3. Overclockers buy more speed ram to enchance overclock. I just want something that run in standard speed.

I have some Amazon GC lying around so I plan to buy it from Amazon.com. Any suggestion?

Amazon.com: ddr3

I think I'll take a chance and go for the Asus ASUS P7P55D-E. Do you think anyone can solve the hd detection problem?

More customer reviews:

Newegg.com - ASUS P7P55D-E LGA 1156 Intel P55 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

From that list on Amazon go for Kingston or Corsair on 1st page. Stay away from OCZ.

I had an asus p7p55d and had zero issue with the board. Only reason I had to RMA it was a clamp popped on my cpu block and made an aweful mess. Asus was also nice enough to give me a new board after I had clearly been the cause of the problem lol.
