    Hi,everyone.

    Just a quick question,I am buying an athlon 2800+ cpu 333fsb, until i get some pc 2700,333mhz ram,can i continue to use my current ram pc2100 266mhz., or would that be unwise.

    thanks in advance, :) (y) (y)

    As long as you run it at 266, yes, OK.

    The FSB and your memory speed don't have to match, you'll be fine with the PC2100. Obviously, faster memory would give you a performance boost, though not as much as you might think.

    Thank you so much for your timely replies gentlemen i really appreciate it.
    I will run with the pc2100 for the moment and when funds are available i will move up to the 2700.
    thanking you once again, gmanwill.

    p.s. I will now mark this thread closed.
