FSB vs Mb RAM
Hey again everyone.
New week, new problem...
This time, i have a relatively small one.
Now that my computer is fixed and set up, I'm building a computer from the old parts for someone (not sure who i'll give it to, but that hardly matters)
The old parts include two RAM sticks. One PC2100, and one PC3200. Both 256Mb.
The question is: would the computer be better off with 512Mb of RAM running partially underclocked at 266Mhz, or just one 256Mb stick at 400Mhz?
I have my ideas, but i'm kind of curious as to whether i'm right or not.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
