Hey,

So I'm building a new computer with the following components:

Case: NZXT M59
MOBO: Biostar A770E3
Processor: Phenom X4 965 BE

Parts used from previous build:
PSU: Thermaltake 600W
GPU: Asus 4870 1 GB
HD: WD Caviar 640 GB

Last night I saw that the MOBO was compatible with DDR3 1333 so I ordered this RAM:
G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And then of course, right after I ordered the RAM, I saw on the product page that it was compatible with only the AMD 890 Series and AMD 790 Series chipsets. The A770E3 is an AMD 770 (Northbridge) and AMD SB710 (Southbridge). Should I just return the RAM when I get it?

i think you should still be fine,, usually it is just what they have tested and perhaps can't guarantee it.
You have already ordered it and will be charged a restocking fee whether or not you open the memory, so might as well give it a shot. G.Skill is one of the few manufacturers that make the memory most compatible with AMD chipsets and should be a safe bet.

Yea, Newegg just told me that. So I guess I'll test it in the system anyway. Anyone else have this chipset issue?
