    Does the FSB speed have to match?

    The FSB is 333mhz-- do you have to match the memory DDR # up to that?

    Then you just need PC2700 Ram, but it turns out PC3200 costs as mùuch or even less then PC2700 so you might as well get that instead. Once you install it, it will clock down to PC2700 but it will still work.

    yeah that is an options but according to my sources the 3000+ is actually 400mhz fsb so therefore top speed RAM is PC3200

    There were two versions. One with a 166MHz FSB & one with a 200MHz FSB (harder to find).
