Is there any additional advantage to having the cpu and memory in tandem--i.e. a cpu clocked at 2ghz and a memory stick at 2ghz?

I think I fail to understand the meaning of memory clock speed. Since most memory frequency is lower than cpu frequency, isn't memory always slowing the CPU down? Presumably I have the wrong idea.

Depends on the processor. For example for Core 2 duo it is better to have the memory syncron with the processor.
I suggest you should start with the basics because seems like there many things that you don't know.
