Like i stated in your previous thread:

if you plan to leave the FSB at 230mhz get PC3700 ram

PC3700 ram is rated to run at 233mhzX2=466mhz

Please post a link to the PC3700 ram you are looking at.

CAS latency is important in determining overall performance

CAS 2 is the best 2.5 is good and i would stay away from 3.0
---------------------------------
All motherboards/processors will support PC3700 ram. But it will only be used to full potential (at 466mhz) if you bump your FSB from 200 to 230
