  1. Im a new builder and this is my first time building my own RIG.

    I have a:
    ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce SPP 100 ATX AMD Motherboard

    and Im planning to get a:
    G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBNS - Retail
    Model #: F1-3200PHU2-2GBNS


    Is it gon be compatible? I have read some of the feddbacks from newegg who bought same motherboard and memory and they said the motherboard is having a problem detecting the memory. Is this something that i have to believe on or its just probobly their mistake.

    Anyone know tha fact please help! Thanks in Advance.

    Why not just go to the Asus site, look up your mobo and download the list of 'APPROVED' memory and then buy the one of those you like the best?


    And yes, some memory (almost ALWAYS not approved) won't work right or won't work at all.

    Click on this and you will be prompted to download the Memory QVL (Quality vendor list) for your board in PDF format. Or you can find it in the download list for manuals for your board, at the very bottom. It's on the Asus global site
