    DDR for ASUS A/N266-VM

    I need to buy 512Mb of DDR memory at 266MHz for my ASUS A7N266-VM motherboard. I have heard that Asus boards are “really picky about RAM”. Can anybody advice me on witch brand I shall chose?

    Crucial works with most everything. You can check their tested compatibility lists here.

    Well, that wasn’t too difficult! Not to expensive either. Thanks!! But there is still time for others to express their opinions on the issue.

    Ya I agree with Beta Geek, Crucial is like an all around kine of memory. Works good in every system but can't provide top performance.
    Currently Running:
    AMD 3200+ Venice @ 2.3 GHz(230x10) 1.38V
    DFI NF4 SLi-D
    2x1024MB Corsair Infineon BE-5 @ 230MHz(2.5-3-3-6-1T)
    KDS 19" Flat-screen CRT
    Logitech Z-640 5.1
    Seagate 120GB + WD 80GB
    Sony DVD Burner
    Enermax 600W NoisetakerII
    BFG 7900GT @530/1600

    I agree. Crucial's reputation is almost as good as Intel's when it comes to compatibility. I've used Crucial before on an Asus mobo. Worked flawlessly after I got a new stick! (the old one went bad, Crucial replaced it no questions asked)

    It doesn’t seem to be anybody who wants to argue about this. Thank you all!
