    i have just built a new system with a sapphire pure crossfire advantage mobo and the RAM in the title, and from what i can see they arent compatible, because whenever i run a game i get a BSOD, but if i put the G.Skill ram in my old machine it works fine, and if i put my old pc3200 ram in the new machine it works. can anyone think why this could be and suggest another 2gig set that will definitely work.

    any help is appreciated

    well with the G.Skill in the sapphire mobo i cant get through half a single player game of BF2, but with the other combinations i get no problems.

    heres the rest of the spec, in case its not the mobo that doesnt like it

    Athlon 64 3700 with AC Freezer 64 Pro
    Sapphire X800GTO2
    Samsung Spinpoint 160
    Hiper Type R 580

    and of course the Sapphire PURE Crossfire Advantage and G.Skill HZ PC4000 2gig
