Memory speeds


WinTMBG Professional
I'm thinking of upgrading some stuff on my system, so here's a few questions:

1) If my RAM speed is PC 2100, can I mix it with PC2700? Or is that a no-no?
2) The FSB on my current processor, mobo, and memory is 266mhz. What would happen if I were to change any of those out with something that utilizes 333? Or even more with 400 or 533 for a P4? Is it even possible? Recommended?

Inquiring minds want to know! :)


rule of thumb is that it will run as fast as your slowest part. but yea you can mix 2700 and 2100 ram. and you can place a 266fsb processor is something that suppports a 333fsb

edit: gives you more of overclocking headroom.
adding to what Jz1397-4 said... you may not be able to put a 333mhz cpu in your board (you probably could though - depends on the board), but you could use a 333mhz board and use the 266 cpu in it afaik.

also, you cant replace an amd with a p4 and keep using the same motherboard... it jus wont fit :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
