Gigabyte GA-7n400 pro2 board? I'm going to put a XP2800-333FSB processor into it. I have 1gb of the pc2100 (266fsb) so would like to save a bit of money by not replacing it. I know the board supports fsb from 200 - 400 but don't know if it will work with a processor running at 333.
Any help much appreciated, it will also keep the wife happier if I don't spend as much!!!!!!
I am pretty sure the memory has to run at least at the same speed as the FSB. otherwise the memory will be overclocking, and could fry on you. I think thats the case anyway. I would not risk it personally. I'd get some PC3200 memory and chuck that in.
