I have a few questions for things I'm not sure enough on :thumbsup:

Can I use any type of RAM so long as it has the correct amount of pins (so all 240 pin RAM sticks work regardless of make and model)?

Are the only things I need to work together the mobo, graphics card and processor?

Thanks! :huh:

No, there is DDR2 with 240-pins and also DDR3 with 240-pins. They are keyed differently (notch in the middle of the pins) though so it won't be possible to insert DDR3 into a DIMM slot for DDR2.

Look at your motherboard for what type of memory it needs.

Well, the CPU, motherboard and memory need to be compatible. A PCI-Express graphics card will work on any motherboard with a PCI-Express X16 slot.
