Question about: Memory Speeds
I'm about to buy my new rig (see sig, "future setp").
Now I need a fast answer to these questions:
1. Basicly any RAM should work at his marked speed?, I mean for example GeiL Pc3200 should work at 200 FSB shouldn't it?
2. I can't afford the Corsair's what's one level lower?
3. Help my fix the ram for my Rig, here are the must have:
a. will work at 200FSB for sure!
b. lifetime warrenty!
c. cheap, like 120$-130$ max!
d. 512 Mb on it.
That's it folks

I'd assemble and test out the next system first using existing memory, so you get an idea how high the FSB can go, since nforce2 AMD boards have a wide range of top FSB, from 180 to 230+ MHz.
If you decide the top FSB (whatever you can do to overclock) is around 200, there are many 3200C2 to choose from. But if it can go up to 210-220 or beyond, then I'd get a Corsair 3500C2 which is spec'd at 217 MHz 6-3-3-2.
