Wusy-
He says no Gaming and No Overclocking to be done... why do you recommend such high mhz ram?

If hes not OCing or doing intense gaming there is no need for anything other then standard pc3200 no matter what Proc he gets all the P4's run with 200mhz fsb

for the potential later.

P4 2.8c - 226mhz x 14 // 2x256 OCZ Dual Platinum PC3200 @ 226hmz x 2 // Asus P4P800 // Vantec Aeroflow // 6x80mm air cooled // Ati 9500Pro

ABSOLUTELY no overclocking, ever? The fastest would be the Corsair PC3200LL, 2 512MB sticks.

How about if you want to overclock a 2.6c on that same mobo?
What type should I get?

PC4000 or 4200 OCZ.

I think OCZ PC3700 Copper gives the most reasonable timings over a wide range of speeds.

Corsair's website suggests TWINX1024-3200C2 for "Enthusiast". (for Abit IS7)

What is the difference between TWINX1024-3200C2 and TWINX1024-3200LL?

Am I right in assuming that 3700 will be slower than the 3200?

Scottchen got some nice OC's with his OCZ.

LL is 2-2-2, C2 is 2-3-3 I believe.

Yes, higher speed RAM tends to have much slower timings in order to assure stability at higher speeds. My PC4000 Pro won't go lower than 3-4-4-8 even at reduced speeds.

So, if no Overclocking is done, PC3200 is good enough, right? It looks like Corsair doesn't make 3500 anymore.
