well i was at the ASUS site, and i clicked the mobo that i am gonna get, and i saw the ram that the mobo supports, and i was looking at the ones under corsair, the 1gig ram, and the model number was *TWINX2048-3200C2*. but the ram i was gonna get has a different model number, *TWINX1024-3200C2* i looked and i couldnt find the exact model that it had on the ASUS website. will my selected ram still work?

well now that i think of it, i thnk they have a typo, its under 1024gigs, but the model number are the 2048gigs

"TWINX2048-3200C2 is a pair of 1024 MByte DDR SDRAM DIMMs designed for extreme speed.

TWINX matched memory pairs are specifically designed for motherboards using chipsets with dual memory channels. "

"TWINX1024-3200C2
This memory kit consists of two CMX512-3200C2 DDR400 CAS-2 memory modules that have been tested together on either an 875P or an nForce2 Ultra dual channel DDR motherboard"

I don't see what the big deal about these dual-channel RAM kits is, I bought 4 matched sticks (consecutive serial numbers) of the cheapest RAM available for peanuts and it's rock solid. Ran several iterations of memtest without errors, runs games for hours on end without any crashes or anything. Cost me $292 NZD for 2GB :)
