I just bought a new ASUS A7N8X Deluxe with an AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton chip. The motherboard is Rev 2.0 and supports 400 Mhz FSB. The CPU is rated at 333 Mhz. My question is should I buy PC3200 or PC2700 memory for it. I plan to run everything stock for a while and then start experimenting with overclocking the CPU.
I understand that to run the memory in sync with the CPU FSB is the preferred method, but couldn't I run the PC3200 at PC2700 speed until I start playing with it the settings?
Also, I see a lot of deals for CAS 2.5 and CAS 3.0., and the CAS 2.0 is more expensive. Is it worth it?
