    If you're just looking for a standard feature set then I'd say look at the Asus P8Z68-V/Gen3 ($180). If you're maybe looking to go with a Ivy Bridge CPU in future then the P8Z77-V ($210) might make more sense.

    As for RAM, I'd say that a 2x4GB kit is probably entry level. Corsair, G.Skill and Kingston generally work fine with Asus boards. Depending on the software you run/planning to run a 4x4GB kit might also be beneficial.
    Check the memory QVL at the maunfacturers website or the memory configurator at the relevant RAM vendor (Corsair >>here<<, Kingston >>here<<, G.Skill >>here<<, Crucial >>here<<...etc., you get the idea)
