I'm getting ready to order a 2.6C (800mhz fsb) and I need to know what kind of memory I need. I need pc3200 right due to it being 200mhz fsb x 4 right? TIA

Your best bet would be to check your Motherboards website for recommended DDR400 modules to use since you are not going to overclock.

The 865 and 875 motherboards are quite finnicky with ram so best to use what the manufacturers recommend.

After you have found that out use pricewatch ( an example ) to find the best spot to purchase the ram and then use
resellerratings.com (also an example) to validate the quality of the online places to purchase from.....

you don't consider running the memory out of sync with the bus overclocking do you?

leaving the processor in spec and ram in spec - more tweaking that overclocking
