Help installing memory

I have this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491
and this RAM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227044
and the slot doesn't seem to line up. Did I buy the wrong ram?

Yes. The RAM is 240-pin and the motherboard requires 184-pin.

DAC, yes you did buy the wrong memory, I'm sorry today. But since you bought it from newegg, it should be simple to return.

DAC, you mobo is a socket 939 AMD motherboard that uses 184-pin memory. So you need to make sure and buy 184-pin DDR memory. You bought 240-pin memory, thus it won't fit.

Also, be sure to buy DDR memory and not DDR2 memory.

Here are a couple of OCZ memory kits that should work well for your board.
