I tried asking for this on asus forum,but i guess people are a bit slow there as i was given cpu support list instead of memory.
Anyway,here is the thing: can someone provide me with the memory list that Striker II Formula supports as that link on asus portal seems dont work for me. And what memory would give the best performance?
You can get the memory QVL by clicking on the Download tab, then choose XP as the OS and it'll appear as the only choice under QVL. Just get it the same way you get the manual and other files.
The QVL lists are generally not that helpful as they contain whatever RAM Asus happened to have on hand and tested with the board. The model numbers are often out of date or include memory really not suited to the board, with high voltage or often triple channel kits for dual channel computers, etc.
The list shows these for 1066 and 2GB size. I assume you're looking at putting 4GB (2x2GB) in this system?
2048MB MICRON Z9JKJ MICRON DS MT16HTF25664AY-1GAEVZES

Micron RAM is sold under the Crucial brand in the US, no idea if you can find those part numbers.
Your system supports a max speed of 1066. And a native RAM voltage of 1.8V. Generally, you should choose RAM that runs at the max speed, has a low CL (latency) and low voltage (1.8V to 1.9V)
So, you're looking for 1066, CL=5 and 1.8-1.9V
Other considerations are whether you plan to overclock your system or install a cooler fan that might get in the way of taller height RAM with built-in heat spreaders.
Good place to start is Newegg.com. Even it you don't buy there, and they are a good source, they have a well-organized shopping area. This page shows only DDR2 RAM, speed 1066 and 4GB kits.
First of all thanks for the answer!
Basically,i am based in UK so i was looking at ocz and corsair brands as i think they are one of the better ones.
Regarding overclocking i am not considering about it in the near future, so memory size is not a big issue for me.
And one more question about memory timing.Most of memories have like different timmings (e.g. 5-5-5-18, etc), so what i should pay attention to before buying it?
OCZ has a new version of their "Platinum" model that also has 1.8V but not readily available yet. Has a different part number than the 2.1V version. Might find it in UK and could be less expensive than the "Blade".
