Default SLI Ram ?

i have a M2n-Sli Asus motherboard (non-deluxe), I was thinking about running SLI i know i have to get a SLI power supply but do I need to get SLI ram. This is the ram i have:

it says it is Crossfire ready but does that mean it is SLI ready too or do I need to buy a different ram ?

to run SLI, i dont think you need to buy the parts that says SLI (except for mobo and GPU)
unless SLI is different from Crossfire.
you pretty much just need the right PSU wattage and any ram will pretty much do

SLI/Crossfire ready memory is just a marketing gimmick to get you to buy their product. You don't need either type of memory to run in SLI or Crossfire properly.

The memory you have will be perfectly fine.

nope.
you don't need SLI Memory. like mentioned above, its just a gimmick to get you to buy their ram. Ram doesn't have anything to do with SLI, your Mobo and GPU need to be complaint to run SLI only, ram is ram

Make sure your PSU has enough PCI-E power connectors for the 2 cards.
