    Default is 33mhz per stick worth an extra $40.00

    I am upgrading the memory at work to play Mohaa. It is hp pavilion 8760c I have installed an ATI 7000 video card. The memory can go up to 768. It has one stick of 256 pc100 in it now. The choice is get two stick of 256 pc133 (which will run at pc100 because it runs at lowest denominator) or Get 3 sticks of 133 and pay an extra $44.00. Will the extra 33 MHz be $44.00 noticeable?

    You may want to check the specs for your motherboard. Does it support pc133 RAM? If it does support the faster RAM and if it actually has the option to run at 133 then it may be worth the extra money. I'm sure you already know that your system is seriously outdated by todays standards so any money you put into the thing may be better used toward a newer system.

    It does support pc133 and it is 733mhz. Wait, this is out of date. now way there is faster stuff out there. oh dude i was robbed !! lol, just kidding. It is a work computer and I do not think the higher ups will float the money for a fx57 and dual 7800xgt with 2 gigs of xp4000 so I can play mohaa. : ) so I think this will have to do.
