I plan on upgrading soon, and I was going to get:

AMD Socket 939 Athlon 64 3500+
GIGABYTE "GA-K8NSNXP-939" nForce3 Ultra Chipset

I wanted to get two sticks of 512 pc3200, but I didn't know what will work with my setup.

1.) Registered Memory with ECC?
Someone already told me that the registered memory with ecc will only work with the Athlon 64-fx, but I am unsure of it so if someone can confirm it that would be great.

2.) Registered Memory with no ECC?
I found a good pair of Corsair XMS on newegg, but I want to make sure it will work with my setup first.

3.) Or Unbuffered?
I am not really to sure with all the Xtra-low latency, low latency, and all the other thing do or if they even help out my setup.

thanks,
Brandon

Have you tried downloading the manual for that new motheroboard you are shopping for to determine what type of memory it supports? The motherboard and chipset determine which memory type you can install, not the CPU.

I was looking for the Gigabyte website, and I couldn't find it . I will look a little better tonight when I have more time.

I found the website, and downloaded the manual but nothing in the manual talks about if you can or can't use Registered or not.
I will just email Gigabyte tom, and see what they say. Unless anyone else knows.

thanks,

You are looking for non-ECC RAM.

So I can use Non-ECC. Does this mean I can use registered or Unbuffed with non-ECC?
I sent a email to the mb tech, but they will not get back with my till monday.

later,
Brandon
