Default Need a good Memory Recommendation for my Mobo

Here is the Mobo

ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI x 16 ATX Intel Motherboard
Model #: P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe

However, it says the memory slots are for 800 Standard?

The Ram is:
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-5400c4 - Retail

My DDR2 Ram is 675. What ram should I get?

It will work fine. (DDR2 675) You can easily clock it to 800 if you wanted to.

I wouldn't say DDR2-667 RAM overclocks to DDR2-800 speeds easily. Not all modules will go that far (it's a 67 Mhz overclock from 333Mhz, so around 20%).

King$nake: the RAM speed is not important with your motherboard, since it probably supports DDR2-533, DDR2-667 and DDR2-800 (with DDR2-675 being a variation of DDR2-667).

However, as I understand it, you already have DDR2-667 (675) RAM installed. There's no point in installing faster DDR2-800 RAM because it will downclock to match the slowest module installed.

Just get DDR-667 RAM, it should work fine.
