    I'm building my sister a computer and can get some pc3200 ram for a pretty decent price locally and would have to order the pc2700 from the internet most likely. So will it work?

    should. check with the vendor or manufacturer before you order it though.

    the computer doesnt care what the stock speed of the ram is, the only thing that matters is the dimm, and what the pin pattern is.

    as long as you use all 184, then it makes no difference. as far as compatibility goes at least
