Memories

  1. Need quick reply, if possible. I wanna put matched mem sticks in my new ASUS P5P800. I want 2GB.
    Question 1: someone here said ASUS is really "picky" about memory. Can't find their QVL- how picky?
    Question 2: any advantages/differences between 4x512MB and 2x1024MB?

    Thanks, and a HAPPY THURSDAY TO ALL WHO CARE! :monkey:

    Don't know about picky-ness, but I've used Patriot memory without a hitch on my A8N's.

    Running 2x1024 allows you to add more memory later without scrapping your current dimms. ;)

    Thanks. Still learning, didn't know if one config had any advantages. ( That avatar- Criss Angel fan? Or look-alike?) :D

    RTFM to determine what brands asus will accept.

    yeah, right. Well- TFM says go to ASUS.com to get "updated list." Their site search doesn't recognize QVL. TFM also lists NO 1024MB sticks. Does that mean I have to use 512's? I know I'm new, but that doesn't necessarily mean "dolt." Sorry to be a bother.

    if it doesn't list it - it probably won't accept it.

    You'll have to use a listed brand.
