ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3 0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Rebuilding a lemon box and wnat to change from intel to AMD, as they have been more reliable over the last 20 years. Selelcted this mobo, considering the Quad core processor, would like to have 6 core, and the info onthe board says ONLY DDR3 memsticks. Not a clue on these new ram modules. Eight megs should be enough for my needs, as I have PNY 450 GTS card for video. What say Ye?

Yes it's a very good mobo choice. Yes 8GB is the norm, since dram is so cheap at the moment. Gskills makes very good ram.
I recommend a 2x4GB kit, gives you 8gb and two empty DIMM slots for future upgrades.
