the faster ram comes in handy when your are fsb overclocking your system with a 1:1 or higher divider between the fsb and memory. typically, only P4 systems that are highly OC'd need memory of this speed.

currently, mobos only supports up to pc3200, but when you overclock, you have the option of running your memory at faster speeds(if it supports it)

without overclocking, if your mobo supports pc3200, for example, the memory will run at pc3200 speeds if it is rated pc3200 or higher

i see know there is no point in getting faster ram if the processor can only run at 400fsb

There are different grades of PC3200 DDR400 RAM. The fastest is low latency or LL. This will run at DDR400 but with fast memory timings.
