Putting together a pc with an:

Asus M2N SLI Deluxe
AMD 64 X2 5200+

When I went to Asus product page and click on 'See What Memory Corsair
Recommends' on the left, it comes up with

CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200)

Is DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) enough to run the above processor?

Is there any advantage in using DDR2 677, or DDR2 800?

No plans on overclocking, just need a stable system.

Thanks for any help.

Use can use anything from ddr2 400 to ddr2 800 or higher. That said, i'd
get ddr2 667 minimum, as it doesn't cost much if any more than ddr2 533. I
wouldn't pay the premium for ddr2 800 if it's much. it won't make that big
a difference.
