If you have the extra money, go with this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131633 mobo (ASUS M4A89GTD PRO)
and
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX CPU (AMD Phenom II x4 BE)

That's only a couple bucks more, and can support crossfire if you want to upgrade you video card.

Back on topic and going off what PP pointed out, 6GB is a no no unless you're rocking tri-channel. 2x2GB is plenty for most folks, unless a program you use would benefit from more. He's dead on on the rest. Have fun trying to get your quad core overclocked high enough to run your RAM that high.

I got as high as 1880 RAM on AMD and it was like FFFUUUUUUUUUU. That was under water though.

You bought a tri channel kit for a dual channel motherboard. You can use all three sticks, you just won't be running dual or tri channel.
