Been while since I updated or even worked on my computer and since then all these new memorys have come out.
I have a asus a7v266-e 266 board.
I see all these new pc2400/2700/3000/3200/3500 and so forth.
Even though these say 333 mhz , will they run on my 266 mhz board ok?
Like can I install pc2700 thats 333 mhz memory and it run fine on my 266 mhz board?(133 fsb vrs 166 x2).
I wanted up upgrade the ram, and with prices the same on 2700 as it is on 2100 would hate to buy slower ram for the same price.
Thanks for any answers
