    I want to buy some more RAM, but how do I know exactly what kind I need? I have a 2 year old custom-built PC with an AMD 750 processor. Is there any other way to find out what kind of ram you have? Im not sure if its pc100 or pc133. Can anyone help me find out?
    I looked at my motherboard's manual and it isnt clear.
    here is what is says:

    SPEED-
    •Supports 33mhz PCI Bus speed
    •I/O clock 8mhz fir ISA Bus
    •Supports 66mhz/133 mhz AGP Bus

    DRAM Memory
    •Supports 8/16/32/63.......... MB DIMM module socket
    •Supports Synchronous DRAM
    •Supports a maximum memory size of 768MB with SDRAM

    The motherboard is a Biostar M7MKA.

    ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

    The board will use either, I just don't like mixing ram with athlon chips, I always felt your better off installing the same type to avoid conflicts.
    Your motherboard will accept pc100 or pc133 if that's your question

    I will have to agree will Brian but I would buy the pc 133 in case you build a new computer and you will have the faster ram both are about the same price at www.pricewatch.com
