That's the socket 940 one, right? You'll need registered ECC RAM. Get two 512MB stick of registered PC3500 RAM for dual channel (or two 1GB stick if you're really rich). Anything PC3200 and hgher will do, but 3500 tends to be best for OCing because it has high speed while still retaining low CAS latency.

Something like this, for example:

what is OCing? the asus handbook says to only use ddr 333 and 400 but i assume i can go a bit higher, correct?

OCing is overclocking. Yes, it can go higher. It doesn't use the full potential of it, but it will be better if you overclock than with PC3200. Do some google searches on overclocking and search TweakTown articles ig you want to. If you decide not to overclock, getting PC3200 to save money wouldn't be a bad idea.
