Default dell optiplex gx260 ram upgrade

the more i look for memory sticks for this dinosaur, the more conflicting info i get. I'm running a p4 @ 1.8 ghz. dont know how to find bus speed (silly me). back to the site says pc 2100, one says pc 2700, and another says it can handle pc 3200. i'm not a gamer and dont do air traffic control on the side. i'm running with 2x 256mb. Seems that maxing at 2x 1gb would be like 9 times faster page loads. it boots up quick anyway. can anyone point me in the right direction before i order cards that arent dell compatible (i read their picky), or waste money on something that i dont need. i also read that this thing isnt dual channel compatable. some cards are, some arent. to get to the point...266 vs 333 vs much is too much? point #2...2gb ram upgrade...overkill?

The Dell Optiplex GX260 supports 200/266MHz DDR RAM. This is PC2100 specification.

This should be fairly easy to find on a site such as Ebay.
