    You are going to use memory that cost 3 times as much as your motherboard. This doesn't make much sense. If you are using an AM3 CPU this memory should work

    You may be wasting your money that's all. The lesser motherboard may limit the more expensive memory's performance and the overall performance of your computer

    ok, well the motherboard is designed to support dual channel 8gb 1600mhz ram, so i dont the price of the motherboard will effect its performance...

    i still havnt had a straight answer though =( i need to know if it will be compatible with amd am3 and mobo, anybody know for sure?

    The motherboard specs say that if you are using an AM3 CPU you can use DDR3 memory, so go ahead and do it

    i know it does, the main problem i had was the confusion over the specs of the memory itself as it states on the official website that the corsair vengeance memory is specifically designed for intel i series and sandy bridge. It doesn't specify however, that the memory will not work on am3 or amd cpu...

    Where are you going to buy the memory? Wherever you in tend to buy it from, ask them if it will be compatible
