MEMORY - WTF to buy for memory? Since I am not OC'ing this build does it make any sense to get anything faster than 1333GHz sticks?

I guess there's no much more of DDR3 1333MHz in the market today. The difference between DDR3 1600-2133MHz is negligible in most cases. So just get DDR3 1600MHz.

Do I care about voltage or CAS latency? I hope not because I don't have a clue what latency is and always hated trying to understand voltage and latency. I do know I need DDR3  240-pin DIMM modules.

Yes, stick with 1.5V rams, most of the modules are CL9, don't get anything higher than this. The lower latencies are also marketing gimmick and not worthy the premium.

Quality RAMs are from Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, and my favorite G.SKILL.
