Abstract: If $ R$ is a ring, let $ X(R)$ be the set of maximal regular right ideals of $ R$ and $ \mathfrak{L}(R)$ be the lattice of right ideals. For each $ A \in \mathfrak{L}(R)$, define $ \operatorname{supp} (A) = \{ I \in X(R)\vert A \nsubseteq I\} $. We give a topology to $ X(R)$ by taking $ \{ \operatorname{supp} (A)\vert A \in \mathfrak{L}(R)\} $ as a subbase. Let $ R$ be a right primitive ring. Then $ X(R)$ is the union of two proper closed sets if and only if $ R$ is isomorphic to a dense ring with nonzero socle of linear transformations of a vector space of dimension two or more over a finite field. $ X(R)$ is a Hausdorff space if and only if either $ R$ is a division ring or $ R$ modulo its socle is a radical ring and $ R$ is isomorphic to a dense ring of linear transformations of a vector space of dimension two or more over a finite field.
