I just ordered some kingston 2700 and I am wondering if it is worth the investment. I have samsung now, and it runs the machine pretty good, will I notice an diff? OR would you go to the 3200 or the 3500 crucial? I am not much of an overclocker, but I like to play around with the puter a little.

well samsung is much better than kingston as far as quality but in speed the 2700 is ddr333 if your fsb is at 333 or your board supports ddr333 by a cpu:mem multiplier in bios then it will take advantage of the faster ram. if not you won't see any difference. The 2100 is ddr266
