Corsair 512MB PC3200XL TwinX
Platinum Heat Spreaders
2-2-2-5 timings
TwinX=2 matched sticks that are designed to run in Dual Channel
the fastest RAM available
$179

and if you want a new mobo, the Asus P4S800 is a great board for a P4
I checked Asus's website and it supports all your hardware plus the Corsair DDR400 memory
$69

total=$248

if you can get $48 more you'll be happy with these

Sweet that **** is ULTRA CHEAP.

I've got a question, will those ram chips run at lower speeds and by themselves?

I might just get them now.

Awsome.

Will they underclock by default if my system won't currently go that fast?

I'm probably going to get the ram before the motherboard, and I wanted to make sure they would work.
