Windows 7: Question regarding ddr3 dimm chip size

Question regarding ddr3 dimm chip size

my board Asus p5p43td and it states incompatibility with ram dimms made up of 256 Mb chips or less. This spec is hard to find and I was wondering how to tell as most of the brands in the manual are hard/impossible to find and this is not a well advertised spec. Crucial memory I am running is technically incompatible but works single channel one 2gb. It doesn't read as fast as it should either. so in summary: How do I find ram made up of chips larger than 256Mb so I maY upgrade without issues and use my other ram in a different build?
