Default Motherboard ram support (need help)

Hello there Tech forum,

I'm swapping my motherboard on my computer and im stuck on this..

What ram can i use !!!

with a GA-P31-DS3L motherboard

Motherboard memory support list URL

But in my manual it says i can use 1066\800\667 mhz ddr2 ram :S

can i use 2x2gb ddr2 sticks as i want to be running 4gb ram on this system.

I have looked on ebay for about 3 hours for ram for this motherboard and can't find any... that is on that support list

The ram i really to run is
Kingston HyperX 2GB 1066 DDR2 RAM KHX8500D2K2/2GN

If that ram is support with my MB can some one please tell me if not can some one please help me find where i can get some ram im from Australia as well
Thank you so much for you time .

I would go with the manual, and get the RAM.

Keep in mind that if you don't have a 64-bit OS you'll only be able to use 3.5GB of that RAM.

Edit: Oh, I'm using my RAM perfectly well, and according to my mobo's specs it isn't supported :P

Go to I would not suggest buying ram from ebay.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

that ram should work. a lot of the time the "recommended vendor" list doesn't mean anything...its just a case by case basis.
