i have this motherboard: MS-PM8PM-V(240 pin). Do you think my motherboard can supports 1GB 240 pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400?

'Cause the mobo set the memory automatically to a supported speed for him, in this case 533 or 400

It will work, just at the slower speeds is usually the case. Not sure what the difference in cost is these days.

It would work, the DDR2-800 ram would probably work at 533.

RAM speeds are backwards compatible.

So as long as the module is DDR2, and doesn't exceed the RAM size per module that is supported by the motherboard, it should work even if the module has a faster speed.

So no matter if i buy the 1GB 240 pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400), my motherboard will only give me the speed of 400 or 533? So the performance will only at 533 or 400 no matter how good that memory card is?

Yes, you can buy the 800MHz, but your mobo only give you 533MHz, don't matter if you buy a 800MHz for $70 or a 800MHz for $170, the performance are the same 533MHz

Yepm it will only ruun at 533 mhz. However, the difference between 533 and 800 mhz is ususally VERY small.

Probably +/-5fps on games, and a few seconds on other production work. Mostly the difference is not noticeable unless you run benchmarks and see the 1% difference.
