  1. so i have seen the ddr550 512mb sticks that are at pc-4400 and i have yet to see a motherboard to suport that. the highest i have seen is ddr400. who makes the motherboards that suports that hight of a clock speed? im starting to think that they make the sticks only to say they have them but no motherboard can support them yet. what do you say...

    those pc4400 sticks are for overclockers right now. they need the ram to be stable at that speed.

    You only need PC4400 RAM if you can get the FSB of your CPU to 275mhz - not normally possible without decent water-cooling or better. The best P4 motherboards (ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe for example) will support ram at 4400 speeds or faster (ive seen as high as PC4800 - 600Mhz), mostly with a watercooled northbridge. No motherboard can offically support PC4400 speeds as it is not a offical jedec specification but all the best overclocking motherboards will run ram at the speed without too much of a problem.

    Hope that helps
