hi, I am going to buy a new motherboard. The ASUS P5B for sure and 1 gigabyte memory dual channel DDR2 but I am not sure if any compatability problem occures. I thinking of OCZ DDR2 800 gold edition. Am I going to have any problem by this 2 parts? I looked on the P5B manual and in the qualified vendors list memorys doesn't show OCZ!
thanks :D

Yes, I am going to use this board for gaming and all the other staff. I read in a previous post that ASUS and OCZ are not good friends. Good thing is that I haven't baught this memory yet so I ll go to corsair maybe or if there is a beter compaible brand!
