When I try to start Portal, after the Valve splash screen, the game exits. I get an error:
Could not open library client
Anyone else seen this, or have a solution?

You are correct that pc3200 would be the most appropriate for a 200Mhz FSB system. Higher speed Ram would work as well. You should only need to increase your RAM voltages if you are pushing the Ram beyond spec. As far as brands go, I only personally have used Corsair and Mushkin. They are...
