depends on your motherboard....either check the manual for your board or go to www.crucial.com and put in your board's info...this will give you what kind of ram is compatable

the pc2700 ram will work in your sustem but it will slow your pc3200 down to pc2700 speed so it is best to get pc3200

best buy or circuit city are ok if they have a sale only. office max same thing compusa can be good even with no sale. tigerdirect.com or newegg.com are usually good. if you want 512mb then you should pay no more then $50 - $60 (U.S. dollars)
