2700 is slightly slower than 3200.
If you put a 2700 in, the 3200 will slowdown to match the 2700.

I would put another 3200 in.

Hope it helps :)

Any DDR will work, but DDR2 and other types won't.

Speeds less than DDR400/PC3200 will slow down the memory transfer rate so DDR400 or faster is the best choice, although you're unlikely to find many faster ones these days (and if the stick is one of several they'll run at the slowest stick's speed).

Don't worry too much about the speeds, they're not going to make a great difference whether you get the next one up or down.
