I have done alot of reading lately and am going to build my first computer in a couple of weeks. The plan is so far is the following
Motherboard: Asus P4C800-E DELUXE
Processor: Intel Pentium 3.4gh
Now my question is which speed of ram should I get. Money isn't really the issue but speed and quality is. I see on the motherboard specs according to newegg.com, that the motherboard supports DDR400/333/266. I have seen also on newegg.com, ram that has speed such as DDR550/533/500. Would buying this faster ram be faster on this motherboard? Would it work at all? Would it only be faster if the board is overclocked? Would it only be faster if the board is upgraded in the future? I can't seem to figure this out from reading the forums. Thanks for any help.
