It's just for n00bs who don't know what they're buying, so that they don't email ati/amd complaining of bad performance after they've just gone out and bought some generic 512mb 533mhz dimms. IMO it shouldn't add to the value of the product.

It's marketeering at it's best... Turn up the hype to get that Christmas cash A.S.A.P. form the clueless PC enthusiasts. Just think before the Internet, this foolishness only worked in America. Now you can B.S. the entire world via the Net and really haul in the loot from suckers. I still laugh at the Nvidia certified PSU list. Some of those PSUs might make poor door stops but I wouldn't be caught dead with some of those PSUs any where near a PC.

You know that its just not for Video card compatible its also for motherboards with the ATi/AMD branding compatibility. We all should know that not all memory works with all motherboards by now.

While I agree its just an excuse to charge more for the stuff, "Lookie here, Im charging you 50 bucks more to tell you what you will find out, that this memory works with any Chipset!". I also think its cool because it takes the guesswork out of it and lets you know you can indeed run these in and out of spec without worries.
