Just purchased an ECS N2U400-A motherboard and AMD Sempron 2800+ w/ fan. I also bought 1 GB 3200 DDR. Can I use that memory. I mean, 2800+ is FSB of 333 MHz and DDR 3200 is 400 MHz. I don't understand the FSB and its underlying importance. So would the memory and the processor running at different bus speeds cause any problems? Please help. Thanks.

Basically, DDR ram is DDR ram. All the ratings mean is the maximum MHz speed a chip can run at. Your 1GB 200/400MHz ram module should run fine at 166/333MHz

PC1600 = 100/200MHz
PC2100 = 133/266MHz
PC2700 = 166/333MHz
PC3200 = 200/400MHz

Btw, the Sempron 2800+ is an Athlon XP 2400+ with a different name and a 33MHz higher bus speed.
