First of all those FIC motherboards are serious garbage! My friend had a FIC AZ11 and the thing only had half of it covered in IC (Integrated Circuits)! Not only that but the board itself killed some ram. I would suggest upgrading.. Even if you have to buy a new case to support a new board it would be worth it.
Your motherboard would have to support the RAM "size".
Well I like the Soyo company. They product high end Japanese products. I have one of their boards and the system that uses it preforms flawlessly. I would buy one of them again. As a matter of fact, two of my friends just bought Soyo boards under my reccommendation and they couldn't be happier.
