Am looking for ram for asus a7s333 board with xp2200. First build myself system. A recommended site for ram, buyaib.com, says pc2100 to pc2700. Says this is overclocked ram? Not quite sure what this means or if it is going to matter to me since I am not a gamer. Just thought to build a faster system than my xp1700 since I'm going to spend some money. Should I try to get true pc2700, or will I notice much, if any, difference, since I am not a gamer? Thanks

Buying faster RAM for a system that isn't overclocked will yield absolutely no performance increase. RAM speeds are only minimum access times, but the ability to access memory faster than your system requires it buys you nothing in performance.

Hi. Should I take this to mean that I would get the same benefit from buying the cheaper...2100 to 2700 already overclocked ram as from buying true pc2700? Or are you saying to just buy pc2100 as there is probably not much difference. I thought I shoud get pc2700 for no other reason than to take advantage of the 333 clock speed of the motherboard. Otherwise I have wasted a little money buying the type mobo I did.
