Hello, below is the item i just purchased on newegg. In my history, I have never noticed that DDR2 memory could be chip set specific until now. If you look below, the specs from newegg show under "features" a list of intell based motherboard chipsets. Does this mean that this particular memory will not work on an AMD AM2 board (Asus-M2N-SLI Deluxe)? I'm unsre what that means. Can anyone please fill a clueless guy in :sol:  ?

Not sure where you got that list of recommended MB chipsets from. If G. Skill support sent it to you, those are chipsets the company has thoroughly tested their memory with and recommends the memory. If you have any doubts about what G. Skill memory would work best on your Nvidia chipset, send G. Skill support an email and ask specifically about your specific MB.

Any PC8500 would require manual setup in BIOS on any MB to run at advertised speed.

Thanks for your help. I guess I'll just give it a try and see what happens ;) .
