In the link from ebay that dude stated for AMD only but i have intel.
After all why ASUS in their list include this code of RAM?
I can only guess the RAM is used and the seller tried it and found out it only works with AMD - though I also don't understand why.
That said, since that model is specifically listed on the motherboard's QVL (which I verified here
), it should work. I would send it back to the seller as faulty.
Then perhaps check out the Crucial
Memory Advisor. You don't have to buy from Crucial but if you do buy suggested RAM from them, they guarantee it will work.
How much RAM do you currently have installed? And what version of Windows are you using? Understand if using a 32-bit version of Windows, the maximum amount of RAM supported is only 4GB and unfortunately, some of that will be lost due to memory mapping, typically taking your "usable" RAM down to around 3.2GB. If you are using integrated graphics, then another chunk of RAM will be stolen... err... "shared" for graphics processing. In that case, you might be better off just getting a budget graphics card. Not only is it likely the card will have a better graphics processor, but it will come with its own dedicated RAM on the card optimized for graphics processing. And the bonus is, that previous "shared" RAM will be freed up, giving you a little increase in RAM in the process.
If you get a more advanced card, just remember that graphics processors are often the most power hungry devices in our computers, so with a more powerful card, you may need a bigger power supply to support it.
In any case, since this system is getting pretty old, I would not invest too much money in it.
