I plan to get a KT400 MOBO and I was wondering if PC2100 Memory will work or do i have to buy PC2700 memory

you can run the memory @ 133, but then you'd be wasting potencial...
but if you want to do it and go with ddr266, get a nforce2, at least you'd still have more than enough bandwidth with ddr266, even for the 166mhz fsb athlons...

nforce2 with a 266MHz bus is the same speed as KT400 with a 266MHz bus. you aren't going to notice a difference in speed unless you compare the two chipsets at 333FSB.

so the answer is yes, you can use your PC2100 :D

no, the nforce2 with ddr266 mem still has dual channel, while the performance difference when using a 133mhz fsb cpu is like you said, none, if the cpu has 166mhz fsb then there'd be a difference.
