I would recommend 6GB DDR3 which will NOT bottleneck the system.

LGA 1366 is the bare minimum to run an intel Core i7 processor which is natively triple channel, so yes you will need to upgrade your motherboard

The Rampage III is the Motherboard I'm using in my 2011 Build, i've actually posted the list here on the forum for people to critique. It's a beast.

Know for a fact that if you are going over 4GIGs of ram you are going to need a 64bit operating system to address the extra ram.
