Okay so I am looking forward to build an awesome computer in the future but I need to know how to tell if the RAM I want is compatible with the motherboard. Can anyone tell me?

You'd have to tell me what kind of motherboard you have.

From best to worse, your motherboard will accept these RAMs.

DDR3-1600
DDR3-1333
DDR3-1066

Which it says... first thing in the list. (Except for the DDR3 part.)

What site are you using? http://www.newegg.com is one of the best, they got a lot of stuff at decent prices [Dell and HP wanted like $1,100 for a NICE rig but on newegg I priced it for like $900 -and that was upgrading some things like a two hundred dollar case]

Apparently putting a [ s ] [w/o spaces] means to strike through the entire thing, no I'm not going to change it.

DDR3 is becoming more prevalent nowadays, particularly as the Core i7 has been out for quite a while. Also the Core i5 is coming out and going by the number of the LGA on that board that's what you'd have to use, right? Or am I thinking of something else? I'm pretty certain the standard was 775, i7 is 1366. Having looked at the always 100%-trustworthy Wikipedia it seems I am half-right. But there are some other cores that are 1156 or whatever it says.
