I am looking to get some ram for my computer but have a few questions.Here is what my motherboard manual says about the memory. PM800-M2 accomadates 2 184-pin 2.5v unbuffered DDR SDRAM memory moduls.Can support DDR400/DDR333/DDR266/DDR200 memory types,total maximum memory is 2 GB. The computer currently has 512mb of DDR (pc3200) installed at 200MHZ supports 166 and 200MHz. Now when i look at memory on ebay it says it is either high density or low ? which do i have?? second what does the pc3200 designate? when an ad on ebay says the memory doesnt support the intel chipset i assume that means since I AM running an intel celeron it wont work? Any help is mucho appreciated

My first piece of advice would be not to purchase RAM off of Ebay, I would purchase from a reputable retailer which will guarantee that the RAM they sell you will be compatible with your motherboard. Crucial has a scan that you can run to determine the best type and quantity for your computer, they are also one of the most dependable manufacturers as well.

DDR 400 is PC-3200

DDR 333 is PC-2700

DDR 266 is PC-2100

These are all speed of the RAM which is compatible with your motherboard, PC-3200 being the fastest. Wikipedia has a pretty clear explanation of this, give it a read.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
