Asus P4TE ram

I'm planing on purchasing a Asus P4TE MB today or tomorrow for a new system I'm building, I'm just still confused about what ram to slap on it.

I look on www.pricewatch.com and a see the 2700 ram but is that ddr or not, I've heard the best ram for the MB id RDRAM, so why dose the 2700 ram say it's ddr? Or am I just completly lost?

O' Hardware Guru help me where are you?

From: http://usa.asus.com/mb/socket478/p4t-e/overview.htm
Flexible Memory:
The ASUS P4T-E is very expandable with support of up to 2GB RDRAM, 5 PCI slots, 1 CNR (Communications and Networking Riser), 4 USB ports, plus ATA-100. Expansion ensures that you get the most out of your investment today as well as in the future.

Memory:
4 x RIMM Sockets
Dual Channel RDRAM Support: Max. 2GB PC800/PC600 ECC/non-ECC RDRAM Memory
Max. Transfer Speed 3.2GB/s
If the motherboard takes RDRam then you can't use DDR... RDRam is faster and usually a little more expensive.

Thanx

I searched mostly on www.pricewatch.com and just found the lowest prices, you have to watch some of them though, there wording is somewhat sneaky sometimes. I ended up ordering a lot form www.newegg.com. there prices were all around the best, they also have a really secure site.
