Go to the mobo manufacturer's website and check the Qualified Vendors List for RAM the manufacturer has determined will work with that model of motherboard.

That said, if you're building a gaming rig -- the low amount of RAM you're looking at suggests you're not dealing with computational science or CGI -- Zambezi is not an optimal choice.
