Hi all

I have just upgraded my cpu and mobo. I have gone from an AMD 1700XP (266 FSB) to an AMD 2800 Barton (333 FSB). My new mobo is capable of taking memory up to 400Mhz. I have kept my existing memory which is PC2100 (266 Mhz).

My qustion is will I get a performance increase if I also upgrade my memory to at least 333Mhz?

At the moment my system seems to be running ok.

Thanks

Simon

& with 2x 256MB DIMMS which runs better than a single 512MB DIMM of DDR.

Though if it runs fine I wouldn't upgrade unless you want to spend the pennies.
