Look like it can only handle up to PC2100 as it says that it can handle PC2100(DDR266)/ PC1600(DDR200) DDR, PC2700 is DDR333, which it doesn't mention.

But, since I'm not 100% certain, you may want to obtain a second opinion..

Just a thought, it might be able to handle PC2700, but it might run it at a lower speed. Might not be a bad idea if you are going to try to overclock..

again.. second opinion may be in order.

PC2700 is backward compatible (most ram and HDD's are) meaning... it'll be running at PC2100 most likely.

it's like putting PC-133 in an old PC-100 socket7 mobo...
or ATA133 hard disks on a ATA-100 RAID card...
it works, but not to it's fullest potential.

Thats what I thought. Although I do remember that some mobo's back in the day of pc-66, when pc-100 was new, that would get screwy if you put pc-100 into it (instead of pc-66).

I wasn't sure if this would be a case like that or not.
