    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Samsung, Corsair, anything 3500 is probably fine. Gotta have low CAS.

    PC2100 and above, PC3200 (DDR 400) is prefered. PC3500 is not officially supported, but will work just fine.

    This board can be a little picky, so try to stay away from generic, low quality DDR RAM.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I've built three systems with this mobo and use a pair of cheap Samsung 256MB PC2700 in two of them and a pair of Corsair PC3200 XMS modules in my preferred system.

    If you are running a 266FSB CPU and don't plan on overclocking the Samsung 2700s will be fine.

    If you are running a Barton or higher I would suggest getting the Corsair 3200 modules or some other high quality 3200 RAM.

    All systems are currently running very well.
