Can I use pc4200 on a motherboard that supports pc3200--in other words--when the specs say pc3200, does that mean minimum pc3200?

Need more info :o
what is the brand and model of your board
the specs can be checked at the manufactures website
RAM speeds higher than PC3200 are unofficial (yet to be approved by JEDEC - as far as I know anyway). That said, they should work fine in any DDR board (and should work fine at lower speeds). The main drawcard for such sticks is for overclocking, and so matching their clock speed with the front side bus as you crank it up. For stock running systems, the higher speed memory is rather useless.
