Looks great - I'd look for this memory (lower latency)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...6-124-_-ProductORhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...6-121-_-ProductGSkill makes decent RAM as well, but try to get a CAS of 7 or lower and DDR3 1600 at a minimum

Thanks. I know about Mushkin but is difficult to find here. What is the best alternative to Mushkin RAM?

I would say Corsair Dominator.

Agreed just watch the size of the heatsinks on the RAM itself. Sometimes they interfere with the CPU cooler, especially the aftermarket ones.

Thx for the info. "Here" is Spain. There are retailers distributing Mushkin in Spain but it seems to be out of stock. I'll try the dominator because buying from switzerland means shipping and taxes. What CL should I get? is CL7 is enough?
