Aye, PC3500/3200 (backwards compatible with 2700 and 2100) and PC2700 and PC2100 will work.

My suggestion is to go with PC2700. Or compatible 3200

Yes the memory you listed will work fine. All PC3200 memory will be compatible.

You could also use a program called CPU-z. It identifies all of your parts from your comp, so you don't have to spend a lot of time looking it up.
