    I'm looking to upgrade the ram in an HP from 512 (2 sticks/256 each) PC2700 DDR to 1GB. I see some places with PC3200 DDR. Will these work, or do I need to stick with 2700? And what would be the advantage of PC3200?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes you can use pc3200 ram in the pc, it will run at the Front side bus speed of the board. If it runs at 333mhz thats as fast as the pc3200 will run, or if you run the 2700 and 3200 mixed it will run at the speed of the pc 2700. If your board supports 400 mhz fsb or you plan to over clock getting the pc3200 will be helpful.
