I'm going to buy an AMD Deneb 955 BE, and will be putting it on an AM3+ socket. What do I need to do to make this work other than put it in the board?

Another question, what is the difference between these:
-HDZ955FBK4DGM
-HDX955FBK4DGI
-HDZ955FBGMBOX

Thanks

I believe those are different in:
Shipping with a cooler
warranty time

Are you sure that's all?

Another thing, someone told me that 4Gb DIMMs run slower than 2Gb ones, is that true?

Lol no. Running 4 2GB Dimms causes slightly slower access times than running 2 4GB Dimms. In reality the difference doesn't matter, but you want 8GB, and better to leave slots open our be able to reuse them.

Running 2 2GB dimms would be faster than one 4GB dimm though, as they are meant to run in pairs

You might be confused about dual channel and single channel memory. 2 sticks of RAM in dual channel will be faster than one stick provided all the sticks are running at the same frequency and timings
