PC2700 and 3200 are just speeds of the ram. Just make sure your MOBO is compatiable with your ram then you should get normal performance.

With the new CPU you just bought, it would be preferable to get PC3200 ( 400mhz ) since your CPU has a higher overall performance, mainly the FSB is either 1600mhz (754) or 2000mhz (939)

Where are you located? If you're in the U.S Newegg. If you're in Canada Tiger Direct has great prices. In the U.K, i dunno what they use.

Best Buy doesnt have a great variety of Computer parts such as Ram. I'd just go with new egg.

I don't like either of those. 1st, the timings ain't the best I've seen and never heard of g skill and not too familiar with gigaram either.
I'd spend a little more and get it from a good manufacturer.
