Hi, i dont really understand all the different types of ram (sdram, ddr etc) so i wanted to make sure if this motherboard and ram are compatable.

Geil Value DDR2 1GB PC4300 Dual Channel Kit (2x512MB) 533MHz (4-4-4-12) with Aluminium Heat Spreader

Abit AN8 SLI, nForce SLI, Socket 939

I chose this ram as my motherboard specifies it supports ddr sdram im not sure wheter it is a whole name or it is ddr or sdram.

Im not sure about ram timings and all that so is that ram any good? If this mobo can support ddr what would be the best type for the same price range?

Thanks in advance

http://www.overclock...lue_Select.html the CAS 2.5 stuff is to be reccomneded doesnt have the nice corsair heat spreader but a heat spreader is cheap as chips to get in a computer shop. You will probably find the ram cheaper on ebuyer i just gave you that link because it will show you what it is you want, overclockers best site for browsing to see what you want.
