Default Best Memory.

Whats the newest hottest memory out right now. I'm not huge into overclocking im looking at speed right out of the box. MOBO suppors 3200 and 4200 DDR2 so give me some ideas.

Noticed the Hyper-X only comes in 3200 not 4200 so that kinda scratched that idea.

If i bought the 4700 Hyper-X would it run at speeds of the 4200?
Need to know quick ordering right now! LOL help!

Well, if your mobo supports 4200 DDR2 and your FSB is fast enough to actually utilise that, than use it. If you are not into OCing, just stick with 3200 (DDR or DDR2)

If the mobo says 240 pin it has to be 240 pin then right?

Correct. That means it only supports DDR2. DDR2 slots are not backwards compatible to DDR.
