mobo/processor RAM compatibility

  1. I'm running an AMD 64 2800+ (sckt 754) and my mobo is an ASUS K8V-MX. Currently i've got two memory modules in my PC and they're both PC2700. I know my mobo should be compatible with PC3200, but i'm not sure whether my processor is.
    The memory i'm getting is a complete upgrade, 2x1gb sticks corsair PC3200 DDR. i heard that DDR memory is all compatible (ie. a system designed for PC2700 333mhz will accept a PC3200 400mhz, although it may run at a slower speed).Is this true and will it work with my rig?
    Thanks in advance

    Yeah that motherboard is compatible with the pc3200 ram and it will run at pc3200.

    So go ahead and buy the ram if you want to.

    One more question, what is the best brand of memory to get? I assumed that Corsair were generally accepted as very good, but is there anything better?
