    I've just bought a dell inspiron 8600 with 256MB DDR RAM.

    I've bought also upgrade RAM bank 1x512 MB form www.crucial.com using
    their automatic upgrade part select.

    RAM they dispatched is DDR PC2700 while DELL homepage says that inspiron
    is shipped with 256 MB DDR333.

    Crucial made a mistake or DELL homepage lies?

    Do I have to change my DDR2700 for a faster DDR333?

    PC2100 is 266Mhz
    PC2700 is 333
    PC3200 is 400
    PC4000 is 500

    So in your case you have the correct memory
