For the price of DDR2 I would opt for a set of 1066mhz 2X2gb memory! rsetter1 April 24, 2008 9:27:25 PM 2x2gb is the way to go but not 1066mhz. GA-P35-DS3L does not like 1066mhz memory. Stay with 800 mhz Ram that runs @1.8-1.9volt and you will be fine. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Building first pc, need comments and help Forum Not so sure build .
