The most important thing when determining compatibility is making sure the motherboard can supply enough voltage for the ram. ASUS is notorious for supplying motherboards with insufficent vdimm allowances. DD2-800 (400mhz) memory for example requires roughly 2.1v for most brands, some can run at as low as 1.9v but that will normally be the best/most expensive stuff. A good DDD2 motherboard should be able to supply from 1.8v to 2.4v at least (changable in bios).
Favourite RPGs of all time: Wizardry 6, Ultima 7/7.2, Fallout2, Planescape Torment, Baldurs Gate 2+TOB, Jagged Alliance 2, Ravenloft: The stone prophet, Gothic 2, Realms of Arkania:Blade of destiny (not the HD version!!) and Secret of the Silver Blades.
