    I would like to built up a small sysytem with the new DDR2 technology. The only thing is that I'm quite misinformed about DDR and therfore need some hel before buying.
    As you might know DDR comes with a variety of speeds
    400mhz etc, the thing is that if the cpu has an fsb of 800mhz and more why does ddr only have 400mhz?

    Why is ddr found as 400mhz etc, isn't it just RAM, As far as i know it doesn't process any thing,but just a storage (ram)?

    400mhz ram and 800mhz fsb what do they really have in common?

    Man, that's a tough question to answer. And the answer isn't short.

    What are you going to base your system on AMD or the mighty Intel. If your going the AMD route, you can forget about DDR2 untill AMD and motherboard manufacturers develop a new socket that supports it since AMD chooses to incorporate the memory controller whithin the CPU.

    This should tell you everything you want to know and more about DDR/DDR2.
