PC2700 is only supported by future chipsets. I'm not sure if you could use it for overclocking, but there's not really any point.
PC2400 is really only for overclockers. It'll help you get above the normal 133 FSB.
PC2100 is the standard memory type. If you're not overclocking, get this.
I always recommend <A HREF="http://www.crucial.com" target="_new">Crucial</A> for memory, because it's high quality and their service is excellent. Other good memory is Kingmax, Corsair, Mushkin and OCZ.

As with the PC2400, can I assume that with motherboards that have FSB of 200mhz, 266mhz, and 300mhz that the overclocking would not be an issue and the PC2400 would be the memory of choice? Or would I still just want to stick with the PC2100.
As you may or may not have gathered, I am not an overclocker person
I stand corrected... Yes other companies use Micron.
Either way use Crucial for all or your SDRAM needs because even though they are a division of Micron they have access to data that Micron has with the other producers that use Micron. They can answer a lot of questions if the stick of memory you have has Micron chips on it. (Even really old stuff.)

This is not a direct response to anyone, but....
You do realize that PC 2700 is exactly the same thing as PC2400?
Here's the deal, PC 2400, or OC'ing ram, is certified for use at 150Mhz DDr at CAS 2. Now in my experience this ram runs perfectly fine at 166Mhz DDR at Cas 2.5. You'll notice of course that the PC 2700 sticks are only CAS 2.5. 2700= Marked up (rip off) 2400.
hope i didn't piss anyone off there.
