I have a question about my motherboard's memory specifications
Here's an excerpt taken from my motherboard manual:
"This motherboard does not support DIMMs made up of 512Mb (64MB) chips or less."
I don't know exactly how to interpret this.
Is this referring to a Low Density vs. High Density?
If so, which type is this motherboard NOT supporting?
Can you gfve me an example of what specs I should look for if I want 4 GB of DDR3 1333 (PC3-10600)?

When chosing memory for your motherboard, you should be checking the Qualified Vendor List of any memory manufacturer your interested in, or emailing them, if your motherboarg is not listed. This guarantees compatibilty, and dismisses any technical confusion.

If your looking for technical, rather than practical answers, read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DRAM

Thanks for your question.
What the message is referring to is the density of the memory. It's advising that your system can only support memory of a certain density, which is the number of black memory chips on a memory module.
I would be more than happy to check the exact compatibility for your system. Can you confirm the make and model of your motherboard?
Once we have this information we can confirm exactly what memory the system can support.
