Welcome to the forum! The best choice would be, if you can find them XMS3500C2 or Twinx1024-3200LL and set the Dim Voltage to 2.75 Volts. Or if your CPU will run it Twinx1024-3700 would also work well with this MB and CPU.

Hi redmist I also have a p4@3Ghz on p4c800e. Since I wanted to experiment with oveclocking, I got 2 dimms of xms3500c2. The memory runs fine 2/3/3/6 at FSB 217. But my system generates a LOT of heat. I'm not going to overclock on a regular basis again, I prefer a more quiet system. So now I kind of regret not having gone for the 3200LL...
