The frequency at which it operates at.

PC2700 is 166MHz or DDR 333
PC3200 is 200MHz or DDR 400

pc3200 has more bandwidth and costs less

0.5gb/s more bandwidth i think

Yeah diablo, 3200 = 3200mb/sec transfer

PC2700 = 2700mb/sec

although if you tested it, PC3200 gets around 3000 actually, and 2700 about 2500, this of course on a socket A system like mine, newer Intels and AMD64's have optimized memory controllers so they'd show like 5gb/sec
