I don't see why that ram shouldn't work with an Intel CPU, if the spec is right for your motherboard.

Saw this today, not a bad price given what's included

Many thanks Tony system scanner worked and it only gives me a choice of either 2X2GB (4GB) or 2X1GB (2GB) modules so I think this mobo cannot take 4GB Dimms yet it says 8GB max in the manual.

Looks like i'll have to start building a new PC from scratch or buy a cheap 2nd hand system
cheers to all the helpful members  :)

It's possible that your mobo needs a firmware upgrade. That might be worth checking out on the manufacturer's site.

Sorry eric I didn't see the view all button and it gives me the 4GB modules so 8GB kit 2X4GB will cost 215  :o and this is the latest & last firmware for this mobo

8gb max probably means the total amount of memory, assuming it has 4 dimm slots that would mean 2 gig dimms :(

Seems you might be better off buying one of these systems people have posted.

That's from Crucial/Micron who are expensive... Try searching ebay for the identical parts?

4GB sticks of DDR2 always are fairly expensive though, because being the maximum size, there are two options: buy the RAM, or buy a new system.

Looks like your motherboard will only support a maximum of 4GB of ram
