> How about RAM speeds?

I'd just get whatever memory the CPU you choose is rated at. The performance difference from running overclocked memory is negligible.

For example, the i7-8700K supports DDR4-2666 according to the Intel product specs...

Also, as for brands, Corsair and "G.Skill" are the most popular. I'm a big fan of "G.Skill". Their name is stupid, but I've never had a problem with their memory in multiple PC builds.

For CAS latency, lower is better. But honestly, you probably won't be able to observe any difference except in synthetic memory benchmarks designed to test that sort of thing.

Also, the way that they make higher speed memory modules is by running them with an increased CAS latency value. Notice that all the crazy expensive DDR4 4600 memory is CAS 19.
