    I shouldn't think so but I know where you coming from. I can't see using it to its max limits as a bad thing. The bonous' properly out way the negatives if there are any. I'd wait for someone like acendency to help you out.

    Yeah, I was reading somthing about my mobo and I saw this
    On the memory side, ASUS P5B has four DDR2-DIMM sockets, supporting up to 8 GB officially up to DDR2-800
    The first thing I thought was mmmmmm RAM, Then I thought why not? So that is why I am asking because I wouldn't want any unwanted issues cropping up.

    I don't think any OS can support 8gb, I think the highest is 4gb on any operating system (unless things have changed for Vista). But if your running XP (Pro) then 4gb is the highest I think.

    Yes 3.2GB (thanks zippit) is the maximum. But you do not need this much as no game takes that much of resources. Any way. It has been a while but i believe that you can use all your slots as long as you put the same 'types' next to each other or in the slots that are connected together. (sorry not a great explanation)

    4 Gig isn't the max 3,2GB is the max Trust me I learned it in school and I have the official windows book next to me saying the same thing. I personaly have 3GB and it is a huge improvement on my performance... I had 70-80 fps in BF2 everthing high 4x AA (2gb back then) and now with my extra GB I get 100 steady even in artilery... because 100 FPS is the max in BF2. PS... I had 2GB and baught another 2GB and it said "3.2GB" in the POST so I sold my other 1GB to a friend.

    Anyway Darko. If you did buy Ram and you were to fit it wrong. You would only have to take it out and your computer will be fine.

    The only Windows OS that supports more than 3.2 gigs of RAM is 64 bit Vista.
