Reading the NewEgg blurb for the Asus M3N-HT deluxe mobo ... it claims support for 8-Gig 1066 DDR2 ram with an AMD-955 CPU.
Then you read the horror-story reviews of actual lusrs. That 8-Gig / 1066 RAM_support seems to be no-sure-thing. Some get it some don't. At a combo price of only $409 I'm looking hard. But I'm no "Black Forest Dwarf" tweeker, so what's the practical truth about RAM plug-N-play behavior of that CPU/mobo combo ?
