Hi folks. First off, what a killer site! I just watched the Memory Basics presentation that you guys put together and I think I understand things a bit now. I'd like to list the parts I would like to buy and see if I'm making any huge errors. Primary use of this system will of course be gaming. I have a regular workstation for my other computing needs.

Did I get the Ram/Board/CPU picked out correctly? 2. Is there a better option? 3. I assume that due to the newness of the Board/Chip version, that's why it's not anywhere on the site yet? 4. I read the "What are the correct timings for My Module?" link in your sig but couldn't quite figure that part out so I could use some advice there if I picked out the right Ram. Is 3-3-3-8 the best performence set up? I am not committed to really any brand of board. If there are known problems with this Board/Chipset, I'd be fine moving to another brand/model. I read many of these threads and there does appear to be a problem with the NForce2, not sure if it'll be fixed or carry over in the next version(did I understand that right?). Thanks for any attention and advice you can give! EDIT: Also, should I get ECC Ram since it's 2GB vs a smaller Ram configuration due to the mentioned "Soft Errors"? [b]NM! Reading answered this question![/b] =p

These modules should run great with this MB and CPU! However, just to be clear make sure that you get a 940 Pin CPU with this MB. And I would suggest that you go with a 940 Pin socket MB with K8T800 chipset instead; as it will be faster than NF3-150 or NF3-250 would both be a better choice!
