    I want to upgrade my RAM in my PC, and I was wondering if someone could recommend an upgrade for my setup.
    My Processor is a Sempron 3400+ (2 GHz, 64-bit, Data Bus Speed 800 MHz , L2 cache 256 KB)
    My Current RAM is 512 MB of DDR SDRAM, Speed: 400 MHz, PC3200, DIMM 184-pin

    Should I stick with PC3200, or can/should i run something faster with my processor (Or do i need to know motherboard specs too)? Also, what brand has the best price-to-quality ratio?

    Any comments/recommendations are appreciated
