Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it makes a big difference which RAM you get if you're not overclocking. Just get DDR400 with tight timings.

 

EDIT: I forgot, get dual channel.

i just thought i heard that the dfi board is picky about what ram is in it...

 

heres a quote of one of the reviews on the board

 

"I ordered this motherboard b/c of all the great reviews and comments about it. Unfourtunately, it does not work well with my corsair XMS 512x2 memory. Turns out all my BSODs and constant crashes was due to memory instability w/ the default timings for RAM. The great forums at DFI-street helped me to get my system stable. Other than the issue with RAM, this is a great board, lots of features and looks good in a windowed case."

I don't know, you might be right. I haven't heard that before though. Look for some good reviews from sites like anandtech. They are more likely to give a better review because they do this stuff for a living, compared to someone who just bought the board from newegg and posted a review. Just a suggestion.

 

EDIT: Everybody's favorite friend... Google!

Some of those are for SLI, others aren't. But aside from that, the boards should be the same.

Those problems are because its an enthusiast board - you're expected to set almost all the BIOS settings yourself for the particular hardware, not just pop everything together and go.
