I am throwing together an A7N8X (not deluxe) system for a basic
home/business PC, with an Athlon XP 2500+ "Barton". Should I go
with PC3200 memory and run it at 400Mhz even though the FSB is
running at 333Mhz, or will PC2700/333Mhz suffice?

Get the PC3200 since that 2500+ will run at 3200+ right out of the
box. Provided you have that RAM. Even if for some strange reason you
don't want to increase the FSB from 166 to 200, the better RAM may
come in handy at a later date.
