Hello,

I have a quick question about if the motherboard and RAM i ordered from newegg.com will be compatible.

In the Motherboard description is says "Memory Standard: DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066 (AMD AM3 100 and 200 series CPU support up to DDR3 1066MHz". The memory that i ordered for the this is GSkill ripjaw Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000.

Here is the links for both if you wish to take a look.
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

When i first looked at them i believed that they would be compatible but upon further reading I'm not so sure anymore.

Also this is my first computer i am building, have a good friend who knows all about computers helped me pick out all the other parts, and is going to help me assemble and get up and running but I had to go it alone on the ram because he was out of town for the week. I am hoping I didn't just delay this project another week :p

Take this with a teaspoon of salt...I have never paid any attention to the qualified memory vendors list. I just buy high quality ram and never had a problem with the ram functioning properly.

That mobo is not good for crossfire, you need x8 x8 PCIe speed, your is x16 x4. If you have two video cards send it back and get something else.
