Default 512MB PC3200 or 1GB PC2700

mkay friend has PC2700 Stick that I can trade. But I wonding if it would be the same speed. Right now im at 210MHZ from 200MHZ, but PC2700 is 166. If put in a PC2700 my current ram is PC3200 it will run at PC2700. So that makes 166.

So is having Slow speed but more MB or Less MB and more speed? what one is better.

Im runing Vista and I need 1GB

You will notice a bigger improvement with the more memory but slower frequency.

Although I know you keep your processor overclocked and I dont know how many options for memory dividers your motherboard has. So you might not be able to keep your overclock because of the memory.

Yeah, I think the 1GB might work better, but before you "seal the deal" with your friend, ask him if you can try out that stick first and see what it works like.
