I am on my first computer purchase and a machine which a friend recommends to me has an AMD Athlon 64 3500 - 2 512 MB PC 3200.

What does *PC 3200* refer to?

Then the specs say:
(a) * 2 GB max memory in this configuration* and
(b) *3 GB max memory supported by motherboard*
- motherboard being an ASUS A8V deluxe.

What do (a) and (b) exactly refer to and how are they different from one another? Sorry if I'm asking what might sound like obvious questions to the rest of you. I feel so ignorant and fearful at the moment, but I hope I'll learn fast once I have my own machine.

Thanks for any clue.

PC3200 is the speed of the ram.

Pete, goto that link. Once the ram tutorial opens up, click on #14 in the menu. It will help explain how memory is rated (PC2100, PC2700, PC3200...). If your interested about ram, watch the entire thing, it's pretty good.

Stop bloody resurrecting old threads. Jesus this is the 4th or 5th you done it too. Anymore and I lose my patience and go mad
