    Go here and download CPU-Z. It will tell you the exact model of your board. You HAVE to know the model number to insure RAM compatability.

    Yes, you can use DDR 333 in this board.

    Here are you mobo specs:

    Be aware that using two speeds of RAM will clock the faster RAM down to the slower speed--the system BUS can only run at one speed. The difference between PC2100 and PC2700 isn't a whole lot, however.

    Be sure to check the latencies and voltage for compatability.
