i'm looking to buy memory for a mobo im going to buy, asus p5ql pro.
the memory potential is 4x240 pin ddr2 1066.

so doing research, i found an asus vendor list for memory for this mobo.

i wanted to get a 2GB memory stick at 1066 speed, but only 1 is listed.
most of the 2GB supported memory is in the 800 range.

does my memory need to be on this list?

i was thinking about getting this ... but its not on that vendor list, so im confused.
Kingston HyperX 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066

Basically, the list given by the motherboard manufacturer is usually just the memory that they have tested themselves, it's not exhaustive.
That said, I checked on Kingstons website as well. When you select that particular motherboard from the list, Kingston do not list that HyperX module as one of the compatible ones...

If you want to be certain of buying memory that's compatible, then I suggest you stick with a module that either appear in Asus's list or in the list generated for that board by one of the memory manufacturers.
