I'd agree about their motherboard advisor.  I've yet to find an advisor 
that is as good as Crucials.  If I'm after something specific for a 
customer I generally pay the little bit extra and get Crucial memory, 
especially considering they usually do free 2 to 3 day delivery.  I just 
went for the Aria memory as it was cheap and for my own laptop.  I have 
used other generic Aria memory in a couple of motherboards and it seems 
to work okay although I'm not sure how well it would work in maybe a 
Dell PC or something like that which may be a little bit more fussy.
