There are only 6 ram slots available on this board, for us it makes more sense
to use the 1GB modules rather than the 512's. Before it goes into 
production I'll
be adding 2 more 1GB modules. But right now I am just trying to figure out what
OS it'll be on. I'm a FreeBSD guy so I've got my fingers crossed for some 
FreeBSD performance after I recompile.
