    Depends on your motherboard. There are PC2700 dual channel boards.

    PC3200 will probably work in a PC2700 board as well, if you are intested.

    no i'm keeping my pc2700 i just wanted to know because i might be getting a prescott (depends if it's better than the 64) and i've heard that the dual channel on the p4 is great so i think it'll be tha same with the prescott

    I might be teaching your grandmother to suck egg's, but...

    Dual channel works on :- PC2100/2700/3200 and I dare say higher... its just you've gotta have 2 of the same RAM sticks (well, u prolly dont have to, but i dont like mixing)

    you know that right?

    u MUST HAVE 2 sticks the SAME for dual channel to work and itll work at anyspeed (Corsair RAM can dual channel at 520MHz)

    btw - buy A64 - the Prescott has simply been doubed the Pentium Storage Heater! :D

    works fine for me

    the A7N8X will do dual PC4000 if you can get ur FSB that high (i have seen it done - with some expensive compression cooling - but it has been done)
