    I am going to be buying a new mobo soon(a7n8x-deluxe) but right now I have a crappy Amptron, I want to buy my memory first but my mobo only supports pc2100. If I buy faster ram, like say pc 3500, will it still work in my current mobo even though it doesnt support that high of speed? Will my mobo just run the faster ram at pc2100 speed or not accept it at all? I plan to get Corsair xms pc 3500, can anybody tell me the best stepping or part # that works best for the a7n8x-deluxe? thanks

    anyway, your ram will run at whatever your fsb is set to, so if is 133 (pc2100 speeds) then your PC3500 will run at PC2100 speeds until the fsb is raised to accomodate it. So yes, you can go ahead an buy your PC3500 and put it in your current mobo without any problems
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
