i have the G.Skill 1066, an it works like a charm, 4Gb of it will run basicly anything you'd need

My motherboard works the same way. Basically, it has 2 x16 slots, but if you have an SLI setup, they will only work at x8 speeds. But if you just have one card in the first slot, it runs at x16.

You're welcome man.

And about the RAM? I dunno. OCZ is highly reputable, but if the ratings speak the truth, I wouldn't do it.

Either of these would be better. mushkin 2x2 GB 1066 MHz or G.SKILL 2x2 GB 1066 MHz

Very nice choice. OCZ makes some great performing memory.

Either way you go, you're getting good memory. The knocks on the OCZ were mainly that they didn't run at 1066MHz out of the box (noobs). That's true of most any PC2 8500 memory.

Yea, they aren't as exciting as the OCZ Fatal1ty. But they run just as well.
