ummm i dont think AMD mobos can support ddr2 yet....might want to look for 184-pin RAM. There are ballistix in 184-pin and they run a 2-2-2-5

registered is obviously more expensive and it is for server processors. I dont know what is really is for but I am guessing that it is more stable. Wait for someone else to fill you in on that though.

only if you are getting an opteron or xeon. For the FX-55 dont bother to get it. It will not work. Save a couple of dollars and upgrade something else.
