    Mem question

    from what i understand, memory sticks come in diff "speeds", like pc100, pc133, etc..

    i was wondering if i could put a pc133 memory stick on a board that uses pc100 memory..

    sounds like a dumb question, i know, but i just want to stop wondering about it..

    thanks..

    Yeah, but it'll only run at pc100 speed If the board only runs at that speed.

    Yeap LT is right on the button! :D

    PC-133 is backwards compatible to be clocked at PC-100. Just becareful, if your board is quiet old, it may only take double sided dimm and not the newer high density single sided dimms.
