could someone answer what is no doubt a silly question; what is the difference between ddr 3200 and ddr 4000.Is there any speed differnce at all?

4000 is faster memory. But only faster if your system supports the extra speed on the motherboard so without a model of system we cant tell you. Most people wont notice the difference at all. even less will need that extra boost unless they multitask or play games.

the motherboard is an Elite NFORCE4-A939 with 1GB of DDR3200 memory using an Athlon 64 3800 cpu and PCI 7600GT card. I do use it for games as you suggest so your opinion counts thank you.

It uses DDR3200 so thats what you need. Go to Crucial and scan your computer click here

If you intend to keep the ddr3200 then getting a 4000 stick wont make it any faster however if the board (not checked) supports it getting both matched as 4000s will make a small difference. 3200 will do you fine if you are going to the 2gb mark. But using a 4000 will only work at 3200 speed.

However if a new computer might be on the cards spending £1-2 on a 4000 one and when you replace the system you can take it out and insert it in the new PC as 4000 is starting to become more mainstream. Personally I would just take the 3200.
