Seeking memory advice on an ASUS A8V board

  1. Greetings all. I am currently running an AMD 64 +3200 on an Asus a8v board. I am wondering what type of memory is best. (That is between 3200 & 2700, and ECC over non-ECC.) I can support upto 4 GB of 2700, and only 2 of 3200 ram.

    I have heard other people having problems with the A8V in regards to the AGP settings from ATI as well.

    I don't use that board, but I use the K8V Deluxe with the same setup. I currently running a gig of Kingston PC3200 (2 x 512) and am thinking about adding another half-gig but currently, it's rock-solid. You may not need that much memory depending on the applications you're using. BTW, the mem I'm using is non-ECC.

    Thanks. I am mainly looking at gaming and standard applications. Some home video work also. (Family stuff). I am returning the stick of ECC I purchased by mistake. Did you notice a difference in CAS latency or is this something I am not likely to notice?
