  1. OK, can someone please help me by telling me what the differences (like speed-wise, etc.) between 400Mhz and 667Mhz RAM frequencies is... I have been looking everywhere and can't find an answer.

    you are probably referring to two different types of RAM (DDR and DDR2). as you would expect, DDR2 is faster and is a newer technology, allowing it to reach higher clock speeds (DDR modules generally range from 533 to 800 mhz). the older ddr modules generally range from 266 to 400 mhz

    I've heard that low-end DDR2 also comes in 400MHz varieties. But of course the faster the memory, the faster your system will be.
