I am getting this mobo
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131540

Will this ram work with it?
mushkin eXtreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146397

I know that this is DDR 500 ram and the mobo says its supposed to be 400 ram, but will it work, or should I RMA and get new ram?

thanks!

It should work, you can overclock the ram up, or set it to run faster than 400mhz in the bios

Yep, no motherboard is "rated" to work with faster than DDR400, but yours will be just fine.
