    I have a old computer with a Duron 950 and an Epox motherboard. It has 320 mb of RAM. I was wondering if it would be better to put in 256 mb of pc133 instead of the 320 mb of pc 100? Will it run a little faster? I have all this RAM lying around the house and I was wondering what I could do to make that computer faster.

    Your duron runs on 100mhz fsb but your board might allow you to run the memory at 133mhz. Personally i would get the 320 mb of 100mhz but you can mix them if you have 4 slots for 128 x 4 = 512mb. If you want to see if running the memory at 133mhz instead of 100mhz speed is much faster download sisandra and run the memory test.

    That is what I was thinking is to run the FSB and the RAM in sync. This computer is for my parents anyway so it doesn't really matter. :p
