Default DDR RAM 133 MHZ or 200 MHZ ?


I have a P4 133MHZ bus speed motherboard.

if I install a 200 MHZ DDR Ram, will the system have a better performance than a 133 MHZ DDR RAM??

No, the ram will underclock itself to match the maximum speed of your motherboard. You are better off saving your money and getting the slower speed.
