Default ram suggestions

ive building a new computer and i have a gigabyte ga8ik110 mb and a pentium 4 2.8 ghz 800mhz fsb 512k cache so far. i would like to buy some performance ram to pair with this that is good for overclocking and will run stable. also related question. why do they sell ram over ddr 400 like ddr 433 or 466 or 500 if ive never seen any motherboards that say they support anything over ddr 400.

Corsair XMS PC3200 seems to be the choice for performance of the masses, at least here.

I argue with people on internet message boards.

Kingston is just as good as corsair and it's cheaper, so look into that as well.

Companys and corperations sell ram at higher frequencys than any mbo can handel because of overclocking. If you had a mobo rated for ddr400 and had a stick of pc3200 and overclocked you now would have to overclock the ram as well and that is never good. You dont want to oc your ram ever. If you have say pc3500 in the same situation the ram will now work at the speed it is designed for.
