Are mobo's really that picky? Should I choose to change this later and buy the specified Kingston mem, can I get up to 1gb using 256mb chips? Seems to me with 3 slots I could only get up to 768mb.
yes sometimes thay are that picky. the 256 and 512 are the same series but the consistancy is sometimes different. So if they recommend the 256 model only that's the only one that can garuantee will work with that particular board. You are correct you can't get 1GB using three 256 modules. I had good sucess with Corsair XMS memory, it might not be listed in their support memory but it works nevertheless. it's mostly experimenting on the builder's part

Yeah basically theres the heart of most techies knowledge. I know it is for me atleast. The main reason I know as much as I do is because I've messed up so many times and had to have researched 100 different options for fixing one thing that now I'm just loaded with stuff. I just wrote a BIOS Article because I recently screwed up my BIOS chip and read NUMEROUS articles regarding recovery. Unfortunately for me every single thing I tried didn't work for me but hopefully someone can get use out of the info

Well, I've learned a lot from messing around (and up), that's the truth. Can get pretty 'spensive, though. That's why I didn't go with the Corsair XMS - serves me right, I guess.

Y'all certainly are very knowledgeable, and I greatly appreciate your help. Sorry to have taken so much of your time, but maybe I can help someone else with what I've learned. Thanks again.
