php, sql and query with a lot of or's in where clause


I've PHP (in combination with PEAR) code like the following:
Code:
 $tmp_ram['motherboard_cpu_ram'] = $webdb->getAll(
 		  "SELECT"
		. "		ram_frequence"
		. " FROM"
		. "		motherboard_cpu_ram"
		. " WHERE"
		. "		motherboard = '".mysql_real_escape_string($pc_data['motherboard']['product_number'])."'"
		. " AND"
		. "		cpu_fsb = '".$pc_data['cpu']['data']->fsb."'"
 	);

 for ($i = 0; $i < sizeof($tmp_ram['motherboard_cpu_ram']); $i++) {
	$tmp_ram['motherboard_ram'] = $webdb->getAll(
			  "SELECT"
			. "		module_max,"
			. "		ports_ss,"
			. "		ports_ds"
			. " FROM"
			. "		motherboard_ram"
			. " WHERE"
			. "		motherboard = '".mysql_real_escape_string($pc_data['motherboard']['product_number'])."'"
			. " AND"
			. "		frequence = '".$tmp_ram['motherboard_cpu_ram'][$i]->ram_frequence."'"
		);
		
	for ($x = 0; $x < sizeof($tmp_ram['motherboard_ram']); $x++) {
		$tmp_ram['ram'] = $webdb->getAll(
				  "SELECT"
				. "		product_number"
				. "	FROM"
				. "		ram"
				. " WHERE"
				. "		frequence = '".$tmp_ram['motherboard_cpu_ram'][$i]->ram_taktfrequence."'"
				. " AND"
				. "		modulsize <= '".$tmp_ram['motherboard_ram'][$x]->module_max."'"
			);

		for ($n = 0; $n < sizeof($tmp_ram['ram']); $n++) {
			$tmp_ram['product_numbers_tmp'][] = $tmp_ram['ram'][$n]->product_number;
		}
	}
 }

 // remove duplicate entries
 $tmp_ram['product_numbers'] = array_unique($tmp_ram['product_numbers_tmp']);
$tmp_ram['product_numbers'] is an array with the product numbers of the compatible articles. So I could select those using for instance:
Code:
SELECT * FROM products WHERE product_number = 1 OR product_number = 2
However this looks pretty weird with like 20 OR's - don't you aggree? Does anybody know a better solution that with the OR's?

Awaiting your answers :-)

You can do something like this:

Code:
select * from product where product_number in ( 1, 2, 3, 4 );
