    I think for necessities you would want 4 ram slots, and for it to have usb 3.0 as well as sata III

    This will help ensure your new computer won't grow old faster

    Just because you have 4 ram slots doesn't mean you need to use them all right now, and soon all usb devices coming out will be 3.0 so it would be good to have that.

    AsRock is a decent brand with a lower price tag. You will have to decide how many expansion slots you will want (pci, pci-e...).

    Yep. 4 RAM slots, but 2 RAM sticks. Get all the RAM you need for some time to come in 2 sticks, even if it costs a little more. Keep the other two free for upgrades. I hear it's better overall to use just two pieces.
