In this thread, about 8 replies down, lowriderflow said "[snip]Then about $100 for 4gb DDR3 (no reason to do 6gb on AMD build)[snip]."
What exactly is meant by "no reason to do 6gb on AMD build?"

More aboutddr3 build
Amd boards have only 2-4 ram slots; 6 gb is good for 1366 Intel boards with 3 or 6 ram slots. 4 gb is plenty for most folks, but you can use 8 with 64 bit windows versions.
The board I'm using has 4 ram slots, has a maximum RAM capacity of 16g, and I'm using 64 bit OSs (Ubuntu/Windows 7). As long as the board and OS can handle it, there's no downside to using more than 4g of RAM?
