    Should PC2700 RAM work in my PowerMac G5 Dual 2.0GHz Rev A? I purchased two Kingston ValueRAM sticks from my work (price was wrong so they were $32 a piece) and they are PC2700 where the Apple installed RAM is PC3200. Please help, because the RAM isn't registering!

    The problem is that the PC2700 RAM is slower (333 MHz instead of the "normal" 400 MHz).
    If they fit, they *might* work on their own, but not with the PC3200 installed.

    If I were you, I'd bring them back...
