Hello There!

I have a question about memory:
I have an older motherboard that supports only pc 100 mhz memory.I have 64 mb and I need a upgrade.
Because I want to buy new motherboard in a 3-4 months I don't want to spend money on a 100 mhz memory.So I want to buy 128 mb 133 mhz memory but I don't know if that 133 mhz will be good for my 100 mhz motherboard.So the main question is:
Is this new memory going to do some damage on my motherboard or at my old pc 100 mhz memory?
Thanx For Answer.

Hello, Hello there, Yes it is OK and will do no harm if you use pc133 with a pc100mb. It will just run slower.

Forgot to mention. Only use the 128/133pc on its own. It wont work with the 64/100pc ram.
