    Have a GA P35 DS3P, checked "compatibility list" on Gigabyte site but it must be really old because there are a lot of things not listed that probably work. Want to know if these will work

    -2 4gig modules (Namely Legend DDRII 800). Not sure if there is limitation on modules being 2gig or something..
    -DDRII 1100 Ram -Thought all DDRII works on my mobo?
    -Any 1066 Ram - is there a reason why it may not work and why they've published a compatibility list?

    Compatibility lists are just general guides, more then 3/4 of compatible ram wont be listed. They're particularly useless. IF your worried about it not being compatibile, do a quick google search to see if somebody is using 4gb modules. I know with a few of the older DDR2 motherboards, they didnt allow 4gb modules,

    Edit: both are probably incompatible

    Gotta love that useless compatibility list. Unfortunately by the look of it you cant. But you can have upto 8gb of ram.
