I just bought an ASUS TUV4X motherboard on ebay... I have all the parts I need for it such as a processor, hard drive, sound card, etc. The only thing I do not have for it is ram. I'm trying to find the right ram for it. I want to buy two sticks of 512MB PC133 SDRAM so it can have a total of 1GB, which is all I want for now. I believe it takes PC133 SDRAM but am not 100% sure what kind I should get or stay away from because I can't understand the extra specifications of PC133 SDRAM when I go on ebay or other online stores. Some memory listings show extra specs I don't understand like 18 chips, 16 chips, 64x4, 64x64, 32x8, 6 Layer, dual in line, low density, high density, etc. I'm trying to make sure I don't waste my money and time buying the wrong ram. I'd like to make sure that I buy the best, fastest, and most reliable sticks for my motherboard without breaking my wallet. Please help me find the right type!

Here's a link to my motherboard's manual in case it helps:

Thanks for the reply... I kind of understand things a bit better now. But can I ask what does 64x4, 64x64, 32x8, and all those type of specs mean. & yes I will be needing the ram for some HIGHLY INTENSIVE audio editing/engineering, and photo/video editing programs.

So I need the best I can get before I end up spending my well earned cash.
