I use crucial.com
It's nice, but it's been down lately and I want to spend a little less.

I would recommend the Corsair Value RAM that newegg has.  I have used their Kingston Value RAM also and it has stood up.

This link is for crucial ram, but you said you wanted to go cheaper, but wanted to know what type would work best with your board.  This will at least let you know what speed ram will work, and you can value shop just about anywhere.

Hope this helps.

Take a serious look at my motherboard guys - I need RAM that is definately compatable

Requirements:
1 GB
333mhz
DDR
(for other requirements look at my mobo specs)

The reason for my question is that I heard many value rams do not work with every mobo/chipset.   This is why I need someone to take a careful look at my mobo and then
recommend  1GB of 333mhz DDR that is definately compatable with my system.

I would say if you want to make sure it's 100% compatible, you should either get the crucial ram or Kingston ram. I think they both guarantee their products.  Otherwise I would suggest taking it right into your local store and get them to put in something that they will guarantee.

that is why i suggested crucial...the guarantee that their memory will be compatible, that means that they have tested it against your board already

sometimes you have to pay a little more for a guarantee

ok past that , why dont you contact ecs and ask them what memory they reccommend that you run in the mobo, other manufacturers actually post what ram is compatible, its definitly a shame that elite doesnt. but to think that your motherboard is in some way unique, and requires some special ram is definitely not the case.
