I picked up some RAM online to add to my computer, I have 128 PC100 in my system. However what I bought was 128 PC133. I have an Asus BH-6 motherboard. CAN I USE PC100 and PC133 at the same time?

Please help!!!

Thanks

Yeah, but you'll have to run them at the slower speed(100).

Yes. It will all run at the speed of the lowest of the two. (That's the quick answer. I'm getting tired and don't feel like explaining more, but I'm sure somebody else will.)

...also, from what I was told, if you're using Win 95/98, you may be better off just running 128(PC133). Anything over 128 is less of a noticable difference than running 128MB of PC133.
