    I'm looking at getting the Abit SR7-8x, but how do I know whether to get memory with SPD or not?

    I usually start them up with them set to SPD and check the speed and timings then see where I can give it a bit of a push. :devil win

    I can't imagine where you could buy ram for that board that didn't have SPD on it. All SPD is is a tiny memory chip on the stick that contains the manufacturer's recommended timings for the ram. The bios can read these settings from the SPD and automatically set the ram timing. You can override these settings in the bios by manually entering values.

    Serial Presence Detect is what it stands for.
    bigjackusa explained what it does.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
