It would have helped if you were a little more specific, there are about 26 different kinds of Foxconn 865 motherboards but I came up with an answer nonetheless. It looks like all of the Foxconn 865 boards will support 1GB of DDR 400 memory per slot. So if your board has 2 slots you can get 2GB max and if you have 4 slots, 4GB max. The best memory newegg has for your board is this G.Skill 2x1GB but at $85 and being so outdated, I think your money would be better spent on a whole new computer.

Yup- best RAM is ddr400. You can probably get a better deal than the 2x1gb for $85 at newegg if you do some searching and deal watching, but its still gonna be way overpriced for what it is, especially when you can get 4 gb of DDR2 or 3 for about that same price.

For any ram you are considering, do your own homework.
Go to the ram vendor's web site, and access their configurator.
Corsair, Kingston, Patriot, OCZ and others have them.
Their compatibility list is more current than the motherboard vendor's QVL lists which rarely get updated.
Enter your mobo or PC, and get a list of compatible ram sticks. Use cpu-z to identify your motherboard if necessary.

Here are a few links:

Cpu performance is not very sensitive to ram speeds.
If you look at real application and game benchmarks(vs. synthetic tests),
you will see negligible difference in performance between the slowest DDR2 and the fastest DDR3 ram.
Perhaps 1-2%. Not worth it to me.
Don't pay extra for faster ram or better timings unless you are a maximum overclocker.

This is a "Hello\n" post. Don't expect specifics or a clear question. Don't expect a response either.
