memory goes with which CPU size.

PC2100 / PC2400 / PC2700 / PC3000 / PC3200 / PC3500 /PC3700 ???? don't know which to


I want 512 MB to start off with.

I have the following two CPU's

Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz 512k socket 478 Hyper Threading 800MHz FSB

I don't think it really matters but I have 2700 in mine! I recommend the higher the better

you need to find out the FSB of your Proccessor and the FSB of the memory. you want them to be the same.

the mobo supports cpu's with 400, 533 and 800mhz FSB and supports up to 4GB of dual channel ddr 266/333/400 (i thinks that's pc2700 and pc3200 for ddr333 and ddr400, respectively,...i forgot whats for the 266).

if you have the cash and you want max system performance, then go ahead and get the ddr400..however you'll also have to consider how the mobo, cpu and rams will mesh together....

buy good quality rams, ...this is almost always the cause of system failures in newly built systems.

well you would need DDR RAM, I don't think it matters what speed just if its compatible with the M/B "PC2100 / PC2400 / PC2700 / PC3000 / PC3200 / PC3500 /PC3700 " is a fairly big variety so you shouldn't have much of a prob.
