    I'm looking for some new memory to buy, preferably 512mb stick. What brands/types of memory work best with my MSI KT3 Ultra mobo?

    I've tried Samsung Ram and it makes my computer freeze so I'm never going with that.

    Right now I am equipped with a stick of 128mb pc2100 and a stick of 256mb pc2100, both of the same brand but I would like to move up to something like pc2700 because I want to overclock the FSB and I'm afraid my current memory won't handle it.

    For extreme overclockin' ya can't go past Corsair XMS3200 C2 or XMS3500 though you will have to increase the memory voltage to get the best from it (2.6-2.7v I find you must have). :devil win

    I overclocked my fsb to 140 with my current memory and my computer seems to run fine but how can I really tell that its safe?

    I heard the FSB also effects the PCI and AGP slots, how so? Is it safe to increase the FSB because of the PCI/AGP slots?

    Yeah it can be damaging the devices on the PCI/AGP if you go too high but that is why there are extra dividers on most boards so that you can run the PCI/AGP close to spec when you are overclocking.
    Just try and use dividers that keep you as close to 33/66 as possible and you'll be right.
