Mobo manufacturers memory recommendations

Hello all.
I am in the process of gathering info for a build.
I was wondering if Gigabytes recommendations have to be followed closely.
I originally selected this memory:

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL - Retail
Dual Channel Intel Core i5 & Core i7 CPU for P55 motherboard

for this motherboard:


Does this mean I cannot use the memory for my amd system as it says its for a p55 mobo?
Should I go with a lower latency in a ddr3 1333 for a cost savings?
Do I have t0 stick with what the mobo compatible memory lists?
Thanx in advance for any and all advice.

    you can still use the memory on the AMd system

    as for the things you should follow for memory standards just go stay with DDR3 and don't OC past 1600 mhz

    you can go for lower latency 1333 memory if you want but not necessary
  2. Thanx Upendra09,
