You should be careful too though. Some cheaper Intel CPU's don't support over X GB of RAM. Check the Intel spec sheets for your CPU to make sure! If your CPU doesn't support it it really won't work. For my Intel Core i5 460M I can't go over 8GB RAM. The PC does boot with more but depending on the OS it starts acting REALLY weird a few seconds to a few minutes after boot (since the processor is physically uncapable of addressing more).
