    DDR stands for Double Data Rate. It has a real clock half that of the effective clock. Hence PC3200 has a real clock of 200 Mhz and an effectice clock of 400Mhz since it does twice the work in one clock cycle.

    To test your memory you can run a variety of tests; I like Microsoft's tester: http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
    Save it to your hard drive then run it to make a bootable test diskette.
