Memory FAQ Topics
||Should I upgrade my PC memory to PC133 or PC100 ?
||If your PC has a 133MHz front side bus , you will need PC133 SDRAM.
If your PC has a 100MHz FSB, you can use PC100 or PC133 SDRAM. All PCs that accept PC100 SDRAM will also accept PC133 SDRAM; however, your memory will only run as fast as the slowest "link" in your system. If you have a 100MHz FSB or any PC100 modules installed, any PC133 modules that you install will only operate at 100MHz.
PC133 SDRAM doesn't offer any immediate benefit over PC100 SDRAM if you have a 100MHz FSB. However, if you are planning to upgrade to a system with a 133MHz FSB in the future, you may be able to use the PC133 modules you purchase now in your future system.
