    the most confusing speed of all the memories pc3200 . why ? theres ddr1 and ddr2 of that speed.
    PC2-3200 is ddr2
    yours is ddr1 so it should work but i see a lot of red warnings in the post.

    so, a PC3200 400MHz should work? the most thing that confuses me is that "high density" and the compatibility to my mobo
    i thought that every DDR400 would work but apparently not

    PC3200 can be DDR1 and DDR2. Even if it's DDR400 (DDR1) it might not "get along" with your motherboard. Happened to me with some hynix DDR400. I change it to kingmax and everything is OK now. ;)

    You can go to Kingston website then check which memory compatible with your motherboard, this is what I usually do when buying the memory upgrade

    I can't give you an answer, 'cause like I said, the motherboard and the memory "might" not mix together.

    The best solution is to use the scanner provided by Tito. ;)

    @R29k: you're so angry today...chill out. ;)

    Nobody is messing up DDR1 with DDR2. I just said that there's a possibility that the motherboard and RAM don't mix together. That's it. ;)

    :laie: I'm not angry, I find it odd that people can't differentiate between 184 pins and 240 pins .
