If the goal is to overclock, it makes little sense to go for tight timed PC3200...there's just not the same headroom available. With quality PC4000, it will have no problem running at PC3200 if you're not happy with your overclock. Quite frankly though, it's very unlikely to find yourself in that scenario if going with a 2.4-2.8C proc., and you shouldn't make a purchase based on expected failure.

You guys are overthinking this. With a Northwood:

Attempting to Overclock = PC4000
Run Stock = PC3200

Probably right. Seen some folks reach for the stars and only get to the moon and are not happy :lol: . That's all.

I agree, if you plan to run at 250 then go for the PC4000 ram.

If you plan to continue with Intel, you'll probably have to get DDR2 sticks in the future and leave the DDR in your old system.
