I have a couple of sticks of 1 GB Corsair RAM (CMX1024-3200C2PRO) at 400 MHz. I need to purchase a new motherboard (for a new computer i'm building). What features do I look for on the motherboard specs such that I can get full performance out of the Corsair ram mentioned above?

It's not really an issue anymore.  Any modern DDR mobo will support DDR400 RAM sticks fully.  What you really should check is the processor.  A DDR1 board is most likely a P4 or Athlon XP system.  In that case, make sure the processor supports an 800MHz FSB in the case of a P4, or a 400MHz FSB for Athlons (they're the same speed.  Just different marketing hype).  As long as the processor is up to the task, any motherboard that is worth anything shouldn't matter what kind of RAM you use in it (as long as it is DDR1, not DDR2).
