I bought a HP PC from Curcuit City recently and it was a great deal, but the RAM they gave me is clocked at 200 MHz. Its good for now but I might like some better RAM in the future. Now I know your motherboard can clock down some memory. Like if you buy a 500 MHz memory and your motherboard only support 400 MHz it would just clock it down. Well thats a little waste of money.

I was wonder how can find out what your motherboard will clock RAM at? I want to buy the fasted RAM I can later on when I have the money....

You could go to crucial.com and use their memory upgrade advisor tool. You put in the make, model of your computer and it gives you a list of supported ram.
