Performance minimal considering costs.
Standard DDR3 1600, CAS 9 w/ 1.5v is fine.
e.g. G.SKILL Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

Be aware of the noise level. Older design.
Following may be used to calculate the overall power required for a computer system.

The link you posted, is dated April 2010.

If you wish to go Intel route,
Suggest you set up a Sandy bridge system instead.
