Intel goes with what type of memory

DDR4. If you mean brand, whatever you want. Speed, whatever you want.

Intel is a lot better at accepting different RAM types than AMD.

I choose Intel for my next build, and I know that AMD goes with high-speed ram(edit: I meant fast memory)

. But I don't know what Intel goes with what type of ram.

Check the QVL for the board you ultimately end up going with. Intel has much less cost-benefit to higher frequency memory, but that's not to say that there aren't slight benefits to be had. Anywhere from 3000-3600 should be plenty solid.

No they dont. AMD benefits more from fast memmory, but intel also benefits from it. 

 

Both companies currently use ddr4.

I assume you have a lot of budget then, or the region specific pricing rules out AMD entirely.

aim for 3000, if you can get faster for around $10 more go for it, otherwise you're better off spending that money on a game
