You really need to find a new local provider of tech support, computer services and supplies.

Run, don't walk.
So basically, what he told me, is bull**** :X
I kind of thought he was talking about something he didn't understand.

Then, if i buy one of the listed RAMs on that Asus's PDF, it will run the Full Speed?

Like, all those Slots?
Btw: How many slots are there for RAM in the Asus P6T Deluxe v2?
And how the heck did alienware managed to get 24 Gigs of RAM at 1333?

Easy really. The specs for the ram say it all,

Quote:
6 x DIMM, Max. 24 GB, DDR3 2000(O.C.)*/1866(O.C.)*/1800(O.C.)*/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory
Triple channel memory architecture
Supports Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (XMP)
*Hyper DIMM (DDR3 1800MHz or above) support is subject to the physical characteristics of individual CPUs.
**Refer to ASUSTeK Computer. Or user manual for the Memory QVL (Qualified Vendor Lists.)
Anything over 1333, at least as far as the bios and the memory controller (that's where the first * above comes in) has to be overclocked (increased divider or FSB) to achieve the faster speeds. Alienware didn't do anything other than running the 1333 MHz ram at stock speed.

I presume that what im going to say now is another tech's crap.
He told me that 4 GB's of RAM ( Complete, no 2x) is only for Servers and it is slow. Is that right?

It's sort of true. Not long ago, the only 4GB DDR3 DIMMs available were buffered, intended for servers. I'm not familiar with buffered RAM, but I believe that the buffering must increase its latency. Desktop boards can't use buffered RAM at all, so it's irrelevant.

4GB unbuffered DDR3 is becoming available, but if I check my favorite online source (www.newegg.com), I see only one product:

Newegg.com - Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model KVR1333D3N9/4G - Desktop Memory

($469 for a single DIMM. Free shipping, though.)
