    If you set it up to run at 100 you will be fine.
    You could try running it at 133@cas3 - but it may not be stable or possibly not boot at all. Running it at 100 you should be fine

    You are usually better off having all the ram in your comp running at the same speeds.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    Would pc100 ram be much slower than pc133?

    Not by too much. But it's pretty old so it's pretty slow anyway...

    its recommended that you put the faster ram in slot 1 and so on then slower to next slot

    Don't know if this problem is unique... and all please correct me if i'm wrong, but I would advise against running PC 100 and 133 RAM sticks together from my experience...

    Reason?
    I did this on my Brothers PC (famous free upgrade of RAM) back when I knew a little less, and It killed both the MB and CPU... no joke. Comp shop suggested it was dodgy board etc that caused fault. It was a generic PC bought computer, nothing flash; and the guys at the shop said that it shouldn't have killed the components.... but from what I have been lead to believe, since.... Comp shop, taking to friends, etc, I thought that it the best course to take running different MHz speed RAM together.

    Like I said, I may be wrong?.... But just wanted to share my experience in the matter.....

    Note: having said this, I know plenty of people who have run diff MHz and both readup/boot/perform fine, etc? So it may have been just bad luck/bad components... just wanted to warn of the possibility and what i found out the hard and expensive way

    I've had problems in the past with running different speed memory. My PC would not power down by itself, I would have to hit the power button. When I put in all PC133 or PC100 it wouls shut down fine. The best fix for this is to run same speed RAM.

    Yes some mobo's don't like mixed memory but others won't mind. :)
