Memory Advice

Hey there,

I want to upgrade my motherboard memory to 1GB or higher from my current 512MB. I'm pretty sure 1GB will suffice at the moment.

Anyway, i'm kinda unsure if the memory i want will work. Here's my motherboard details:

Motherboard Name MSI MS-6533EG (3 PCI, 1 AGP, 1 CNR, 2 DIMM, Audio, Video)
Motherboard ID 01/13/2003-SiS-651-6A6IXM4FC-00

The memory i have in just now is (strangely) one stick of PC2100 and another of PC3200:

DIMM1: Nanya M2U25H64DS8HB0G-75 256 MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-6 @ 133 MHz) (2.0-2-2-5 @ 100 MHz)

DIMM2: Nanya M2U25664DS88B3G-5T 256 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.5-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz) (2.0-2-2-6 @ 133 MHz)

Hoping to buy two sticks of PC3200 as i understand this is faster. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

I'm guessing that PC3200 with 400Mhz wouldn't work?

Could anyone advise me? Cheers.
