Yes it will work. Motherboard supports the Socket 940 Opteron CPU. I don't let that word "server" intimidate me. To me, it's just another desktop PC.

Is there any way of returning your RAM for store credits? That's if, you bought your RAM at stores such as Fry's, Circuit City, CompUSA..

Try it, remember to ask the manager of the Returning department. Don't ask those stupid workers, they don't know what they're doing.
