That's about ~$42 US.

A Samsung version is Intel certified, but is about $8 US more expensive. I don't think this one is, but could it work on an Intel LGA775 motherboard? I've missed the LGA generation. Would I need two sticks of these for dual channel for hyper-threading just like the socket 478 motherboards?

That will work fine on the PGA socket, and yes you need 2 sticks for Dual Channel, just like S478. Also, its worth noting the latencies on those sticks are CL4, I believe you can find some CL3 DDR2 now.

Thanks for the info. What about power supply? Can I use a standard ATX 350W rated for P4's? Or do these LGA775 Prescott's/Intel motherboards need a specialized power supply for this ram?

note: for a P4 3.4E 550 LGA775 on an Intel D915PBL

The powersupply will probably be ok... what kinda video card are you gonna be running though? Most 915 boards also recommend a 24 pin PSU.

Well darn. I just realized there's no built-in video on the D915PBL. :thumbdwn:

Looks like I'll have to use this 1x PCI SLI2 + 1x PCI setup. :eek:

Well, this is taken straight from Intel's site. I haven't actually received the motherboard yet, but if I can get away with it, that extra 4-pin plug I see should be able to do it.
