The RAM will downspeed (is that a word) itself so that it matches your specs. Just like I got PC2-6400 for a system that could only accept PC2-5300 and it accomodated it.

If you are palnning on keeping the PC2700 in the machine, it would be best to get memory that matches that.

PC3200 will work fine also, but will downclock to the PC2700 speeds as Computer Head pointed out.

i think the two posters above gave you all the answers you'll need. if i were you, i'd try to match the same speed of the original stick, unless you are not going to be using that 512 stick...then like they said above, it'll downspeed to your computers performance.

With the prices the way they are right now, for only $23.99, you can get a gig (2x512MB) of PC3200 that will increase your performance over the PC2700.

pqi POWER Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400

You computer can support up to 2GB of memory. This would be a good deal too: Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
