That type of list would be very lengthy.

The compatibility is determined by the chip set and/or processor. The chip set is designed with a series of CPUs in mind. The memory to be used has some flexibility.

Additionally, the number of memory channels can change.

I suggest you first choose a processor series and then look at motherboards designed to run that series of processor.

Go to newegg.com and search for motherboards. You can search using filters. Choose the proceesor or chip set and then view the selection to learn more.

Finally, not all RAM is created the same. Motherboard manufacturers publish a list of RAM they have tested and know is compatible.

Now you are talking about a different problem, quantity.

256 Mbs RAM will work with a dual core processor but you will not be able to do much with it as software considerations would have to be made.

You could just about get away with using Windows XP but forget about Windows Vista or 7.

Even with Windows XP you will be restricted by what you can do which rather defeats the object of a dual core processor. These days you need to be thinking about 1Gb of memory at least.

They are all different types of memory with different operating frequencies. Motherboards are usually designed to take one and only one type of memory.

Google will give you descriptions of what each are capable off.

This is beginning to sound like a homework assignment.
