If your motherboard supported ddr400 (pc3200) than cooling would be the only issue. The problem is, your motherboard does not support it. Not only would it be a waste to upgrade to pc 3200, as really it wouldnt be an upgrade, but it likely wouldnt work in your system. Your fsb speed would support it, but the mobo specs say a max of 2700. If your mobo can in fact accept ddr400, than it would be a worthwhile upgrade if you also set ur fsb to 400mhz. Otherwise, just look for better quality pc2700, because that will make more of a difference than most people think.
