Well, you have to first find out what the max your boad supports is. I mean what speed PCxxxx it will go up to. If it only supports up to PC2700, and you throw a 3200 stick in their they will all downclock to the slowest one and you will be paying for something you arent getting. Check in the motherboard book, or give us the type of computer it is and we will find out.
