but you would need two of the pc3200 so 80 bucks.
Now the questions.
Will the mobo support pc3200?
Do you want to spend 80 bucks?
Is pc3200 faster?>yes
Will you see a diff?>hmmm.
512MB+XP+GP usage seems to be the sweet spot so if you go to 1GB will it be a plus? >unknown, try it.
Just an opinion.
I think that many folks can get as much extra perf out of the machine with some serious house cleaning as they will with making the machine bigger/more powerful.
Hello fellow c/net-ters, I am one of the many people looking to upgrade my ram. I currently only have only 1 stick of 516m/b(pc2700) in a amd xp 2800 system w/ a 256/mb Fx5600 nividia graphics card on win xp. I am considering switching over to 1 gig of pc3200 is it a worthwile switch or should i just stick with the pc2700. I have heard that pc3200 was a more unstable ram then that of the 2700. I am not that new to this however i am a cheap ******* so anyone could give me an idea of what to buy so i don't waist time and money, i would be greatful. And i've looked at the all the different brands from what i have seen and read going with high end ram really only serves those who use the cpu for gaming. I use mine mostly internet and dvd backup
