    Get some Kingmax PC3500. It's about $7 more than the Kingmax PC3200, so it's worth it. It will give you a fair amount of overclocking room.

    okay but i dont think my mobo supports DDR433's, like the PC3500 your talking about. correct me if i am wrong.

    or do you reccomend another mobo thats better than the one above i am trying to get?

    thanks!

    You're wrong. It does. Well...
    No motherboard can technically claim to support RAM running higher than 200MHz, but any almost motherboard with overclocking features will.

    I can't say that I'd recommend a different board, either.

    this is a dumb question. but okay so, if my mobo can support DDR400's that mean i have to stay in the 400's spec? or even higher? like in the 500's? well, in that case, PC3500 it is. or should you recommend higher?

    thanks yawgmoth

    Most mainboards these days will state support for PC3200 as that is the last ratified standard but that doesn't mean that you can't use higher spec'd memory though this question has already been answered for you but if I was using that mainboard and I was going to overclock then PC3500 would be the minimum I would use (you can use up to PC4400 if you realy wanted to though).

    Wayout pretty much hit the nail on the head. Although, PC3200 works fine for overclocking, if it's quality stuff that will overclock. Also, I've seen PC4500 modules for sale.

    The point of getting faster RAM is that you can run it as the same speed as the processor FSB (well, not an FSB with an A64, but anyway). PC3200 would actually be okay, though, as Athlon 64s recieve very little real-world benefit from running RAM at the same speed as the base clock (FSB, with other processors). But that Kingmax will run at decent timings and overclock at the stock timings moderately well for very little money. You'd be hard-pressed to find PC3200 that was at good for the same price. The only comparable PC3200 memory I've seen at Newegg is this, but I haven't read much (anything) about PDP Systems, so I personally won't strongly consider their RAM until I see something (a good reveiw at Anandtech, for example). Basically, that Kingmax will be good even if you only run it at DDR400 speeds; the fact that it's PC3500 only gives you the overclocking option if you really need it. Hell, maybe the stuff will even run at CAS latency of 2 at 200MHz... It's just really good RAM for the price.
