I am looking to buy a ASUS M4A79 Deluxe motherboard at NewEgg and under the specs there is a note regarding the memory standard for this MB. It says:
- DDR2 1300(O.C.)/1200(O.C.)/1066 * /800/667
- ECC,Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory
- Due to AMD CPU limitation, DDR2 1066 is supported by AM2+ / AM3 CPU for one DIMM per channel only.
What does the limitation emphasized above means in layman's terms? The MB supports 16 GB of memory and it seems like the only way to max it out is by using DDR2 800 4G modules X 4. Is that a correct assumption? The main use for the system I'm building is as a development workstation that will run several VMs.
