The memory standard refers to the type of RAM that is supported, this is normally called something along the lines of DDR3 1333 etc. So the standard would be DDR3 running at 1333Mhz bus speed.

The board you are looking at specs say it supports DDR3 1333 / 1066, so DDR3 RAM running at either 1333 or 1066Mhz bus.

I would suggest buying RAM that is on the Gigabyte Qualified Vendor List (QVL) for that board. This is a list of memory modules that have been tested and Gigabyte guarantee compatibility. In the long run it can save you some problems if you buy otehr RAM and then have issues.

Here is a link to the Gigabyte QVL for that board: http://www.gigabyte-usa.com/FileList/MemorySupport/mb_memory_ga-790xt-usb3.pdf

There is some G Skill RAM on the QVL but I can find the particular modules you have linked.
