    I got the motherboard SOLTEK 75 KAV and I recently upgraded my processor from 750 DURON to AMD Palomino XP 1800+

    To do that I upgraded the bios and it worked fine.
    The problem occured when I didn´t upgrade my RAM. It seems like they are a bottleneck for the processor since it only runs at 1150mhz. I got the SDRAM PC100 type. Now i was wondering what kind of RAM to use if I wanna upgrade?

    SOLTEK 75 KAV Bios Info!

    I plan to use either 512MB SDRAM PC133 or, if possible, 512MB DDR PC2100 266MHz.

    There have also occured a problem since installing the processor I upgraded too, graphic glitches and bugs show quite often in Counterstrike and Dark Age Of Camelot. Any suggestions as to what might cause that problem?

    I used to OPTIMIZED DEFAULT option in the BIOS SETUP after installing it by the way.

    Please come with any advice you might have!!

    it is a PC-133 board. I suggest a DDR board (really improves proformance)
