Default what RAM for ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard?

I am planning on upgrading my motherboard cpu and ram.

I have already ordered an i7 930 that i plan on overclocking to the 4ghz area, and i am planning on purchasing

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS P6X58D-E X58 ATX LGA1366 3PCI-E16 PCI-E1 2PCI CrossFire SLI USB3.0 SATA 6GB/S Motherboard - P6X58D-E In Canada.

this motherboard.

I am however having a very difficult time figuring out which ram to get for it, i figure i need 1600mhz since i plan on overclocking, but i'm reading about alot of different compatibility issues with ram and this motherboard.

does anyone have this board? and if so, what ram are you using?

i'd like to stay below 150, or very close at least, i'm going to be getting the motherboard for 220, i would hope i can spend less on the ram
