This is what i have so far, i just need to pick what type of memory. Im using this for gaming and browsing and maybe use multiple monitors. What do you think of the build? and what type of memory should i pick? (brand? 8 or 16 gb?)

I usually stick with Corsair or Crucial. But G.Skill is getting lot of good marks. As far as the other specs, stick with 8GB and DDR3-1600 at the most.

Do you have any specific one you would recommend that is compatible with the motherboard?

As long as it meets the RAM type and speed, it should be fine. The memory compatibility list is just whatever the manufacturer tested and can guarantee will work. It's not a list of what only works.
