Specs: Window xp home, Intel
I would like to upgrade my memory. But what is the difference between pc3200u and pc3200. I'm currently using Dell dimension 8300. They got 4 slots of ram. I'm having 2*256 of pc3200u-30330. If I would like to upgrape, pc3200 will be compatible with my slots or not. I'm planning to buy 2*512

I haven't heard of that RAM but a Google search shows this RAM to be used in Apple computers. I suggest you get the same exact RAM. Go to Crucial.com and use thier configurator. They guarantee the memory to work. Kingston has a similar utility.

in my experience the U means Unbuffered which is the usual type of home pc ram.
it was much more common to see the U in the spec on the label with PC133U a few years ago when pc133 was the common type of ram in those days
