The only negative effect of using PC100 RAM with PC133, is that it lowers everything to PC100 speeds. Of course, for all but a very select few apps, you'll never know the difference. And always remember, that the slowest RAM is still thousands of times faster than the fastest hard drive, so more of a slower type of RAM is still better than less of a faster type and using disk paging to pick up the slack.
P3866,Win98SE,40Gb & (was)256 SDram PC133.
Just got machine back from repair shop. Power supply died. Replaced with new 300wt (formerly 200wt). While there, ordered install of new DVDRom and doubling of memory to 512.
Upon getting home discovered instead of adding additional 256 of PC133 SDram, they had added only 128 of PC100 SDRam. Clearly not what desired! Before returning for correction, I wanted to ask:
Are there negative connotations to this current set- up?
Possibly reduced overall speed due to the PC100 (lowest common denominator)? Possible conflicts or hardware caused confusion for software?
I suspect they didn't have any PC133 on hand and figured no one would notice! Thanks in Advance for your council!!
