    For the ram, I would make sure it appears on the asus qvl list. When you buy ram that is not on the list, it may work or it may not. You are in effect a beta tester.

    Next there are two different 8400 cpu. One requires a later bios than the other. I would make sure of what stepping cpu you are buying AND the board has at least that bios or later. If you have an old cpu that you can use to flash the bios, then it is not a problem.
