Since you didn't specify a specific variation of the 945 Chipset, I cannot give you a very specific answer. But something to know is that the supported FSB of the board is a good indicator. All recent boards should be able to handle up to DDR2 800(PC6400) and the higher end boards can probably reach even higher.

To be safe, just go with DDR2 800, as it is widely supported and best bang for the bung(in performance memory.)

Could you specify more what you mean, though?

I'm a little confused are you talking about Intel Pentium D945 or Intel P945 motherboard chipset? Your last post saying an abit board using a nvidia nf4 chipset confused me.

If its the Pentium D 945,i have one of these and can go upto 275x17 so thats 550mhz ddr2 on 1:1 however you can increase the fsb/dram ratio but anything more than ddr2 800 would be a waste of money on that chip.Excuse me if i got it wrong.
