Can SODIMMs RAM be used on a Gaming pc?

I am new to PCs and am currently ordering parts for it. I’m stuck on the RAM part and ordered this http://www.ebay.com/itm/253099417847 would this work for my MSO B450 AMD motherboard?

No, it's a laptop stick. You need DIMM in DDR4, preferably x2 8Gb at DDR4-2666

Its definitely not going to work with his motherboard.

Not really.... SO-DIMM is mainly use for laptops, but there are other motherboards (thin mini itx and STX format) that use SO-DIMM ram.

Here is an example

Don't use adapters like that, they have terrible compatibility and are very sketchy

It is compliant with the JEDEC specifications and 2400MHz DDR4, so it should work considering all RAM OEMs comply with these standards.

Let me ask you a question: Have you ever used this adapter before? I have and it worked just as intended for a customer's budget-restricted build. They already had the memory from a laptop and they wanted to upgrade to a desktop processor and GPU. The only way to do that was to keep as many components from the laptop in the new build as possible. We ended up using the Corsair SODIMMs with that exact adapter I linked to, the Transcend M.2 drive, and the 2.5" Toshiba HDD.
