I would go with the firts selection personally, definatly go with the NF7 if you are going the AMD route its probably the best overclocking board for the XP range of CPU's there is. I was going to say go with the PC3200 also but then I realised that the price difference is pretty small so you may aswell go with it atleast then when you hit a nice speed you should be able to retain some nice timings on the RAM at the same time!

I have the Asus MoBo and I love it. I hear good things about Corsair mem too. I just orderd two Mushkin LvL II PC3500 512 sticks. I'll post how they work. I really love the Asus boards.

if you go to the abit site and look at the compatability sheet, it says that only ddr433 work for the ocz, so i will get the ddr400 Corsair i think.
So it works with no problems.

shoot it does not say that the ddr400 corsair 512mb stick works.
what do i do? The pc3500 ddr433 should work right?

You can tell buy the fsb support. Rev 2 is the only one that supports 400fsb. The one you are looking at from NewEgg is the rev 2.
