I am not certain if you are referring to the "SDRAM" (which your link says this patriot memory is) or the fact that some RAM is SLI ready such as the OCZ ram. The "SLI ready" is supposed to certify that this RAM is rated by the manufacturer to work on SLI enabled motherboards. If the motherboard is DDR2 or DDR3 ready with a PC-8500 (or PC2/3-what ever speed) the matching memory module will work just fine. Please note a number of manufacturers also make power supplies rated as either crossfire or sli ready. This is just a way of trying to communicating with the public that their product will work with crossfire or sli ready motherboards.

Actually I think if I've read about it correctly its supposed to incorporate some ram performance feature that non-sli ram doesn't have but afik performance is the same. Pretty much just a marketing gimmick.

 

Edit: Nvidia tells you specifically what SLI Ready mem does: http://www.slizone.com/object/slizone_build_mem.html

 

Basically has support for EPP 1.0 and 2.0 profiles and oooo special advanced memory settings if you use it.... which more or less you probably don't need either.
