Is it? I mean i have 768 now and planning on getting a gig of 2700 (333) RAM. My Mobo supports more but i dont want to spend even more money on getting all new PC3200. So is 2700 too outdated and slow?

no I use it and it is fine i just don't have enough, only have 512mb. PC 3200 is about the same price as 2700 for the same MB

I'd suggest getting 3200 if you're upgrading, I don't think the future lies in 2700, although I don't think you'd notice a big difference, it'll help. I myself have 3200 (have 1gig of 4200 lying here), but I think 3200 is the way to go.

Still, you shouldn't take what I say too much into consideration, I'm definately not one of the better half when it comes to the Tech field in this forum.

it also depends on the processor fsb speed, if its only 333 then it may be a waste of time getting faster ram unless you are thinking of upgrading the processor at a later date

Thinking about it.

i want 1GB of xms pc4000 with an amd64 3500, but its very expensive, so i might get ddr400 or ddr 433, something like that anyway, but i would LOVE to get DDR500
