    Thats all you need to know, the CPU is irrelevant for selecting memory. The CPU never has dictated the type of memory used. The motherboard either supports the memory or it doesn't.

    That being said make sure that your OS is 64 bit if you plan on buying 8GB. If it a 32 bit OS you will only be able to use about 3GB.
