    Default Which RAM?

    I'm trying to complete an upgrade, but still need to buy RAM;

    CPU is 2.53Ghz Northwood (533 Mhz)
    Motherboard is ASUS P4P800-SE

    I plan to overclock just using the motheroard settings, but somehow I'm still a bit thick skulled when it comes to RAM. What would be the best way to go for 2 sticks of RAM to maximize the Board/CPU combo I have?

    Two sticks of PC3200 or PC3500 would be good. Low-latency is best, if you can afford it. At the very least, something like Corsair Value Select CAS 2.5, but something with 2-3-3 or 2-2-2 timings would be better. Anythin more than PC3500 would probably be overkill since you have a 533MHz FSB processor, which needs to be overclocked just to take advantage of PC3200.

    So keeping the RAM 'in sync' with processor bus speed isn't an issue like it is with AMD processors? Also, if you have a link for good info on this issue i'd appreciate it.
