I tired posting this question in the memory section, but didn't get any answers, so I'm hoping to find some answers here. I'm pretty settled on getting the ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus. It really seems like the best buy right now and after reading all the reviews I don't see why not to get it. So my question is what memory should I get. I read that this board is very picky about it's memory. I went to ASUS website, but unfortunately their QVL list isn't up (go figure). I know I want 2GB of DDR2 800 memory. I was looking at Crucial Ballistix BL2KIT12864AA804 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820146565

I'm not sure this memory will work though because when I went to the ASUS fourms I found a post saying these were the memory that was working with it, and as you can see the one I was looking at is posted saying it wont work. I'm sure this post is right, but without the offical OVL list I don't know for sure.

I was looking at Crucial because I read that they use mirconD9 chips which are the best ones for overclocking. I don't plan to overclock right away, but I would like to have that option in the future. So what do you guys think, is there something better out there for me/what are you guys using with this board/or even does any one have the offical QVL list? Keep in mind the most I'm willing to pay for memory is $280, and please explain your answer, just don't say this brand is better, please tell me why. Thanks for the advise ahead of time.
