I would like two 8 gigs sticks but if two is too costly, can anyone suggest an affordable 8 gig stick that would be compatible with my build? Thank you.
 
PS will be building on 64 bit system.

There is no reason to buy DDR3 for new system. Also that motherboard and CPU only supports DDR3L. i5-7600K is also obsolete CPU (Coffee Lake replaced it and Ryzen 5 made it obsolete) and that's why I would pay at most around $130 for it.

I tried to get the owner to go with the Ryzen AMD but he wants the above. It's not my money.

 

So, is this ram link below gonna work for the build?
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Crucial-4GB-288-Pin-DDR4-2133-PC4-17000-Desktop-Memory-Model-CT4G4DFS8213/272956524836?hash=item3f8d7a0924:g:KCoAAOSwdJ9aG3SI

 

If not, can you help me pick some? I am doing this as a favor for a friend and I am not very good at this :( thanks.

 

PS. How can I explain that he can get a better build for less money? IE Ryzen?

I'm afraid not.  That is DDR4 memory - not compatible as the motherboard you've chosen requires DDR3L.

 

This will work, and is about as cheap as you'll get new - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/PCL7YJ/mushkin-memory-992031e

If your friend wants what you linked in first post, then you can tell he/she wants to buy outdated and overpriced crap and we are offering better alternatives. If that doesn't help, show review like that http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2017-ryzen-5-1600-1600x-vs-core-i5-7500k-review

 

If those don't help, then I suggest you get what your friend wants, even if it's overpriced crap.

I seriously doubt that you can build a computer with a ryzen 5 for $400.00

You will need more money to save to have build for over a thousand dollars
