Stupid n00b question?
I am currently stuck with a Duron 1.3 ghz and 256Mb of 266Mhz RAM.
i have a lousy mobo that won't let me play games for longer than 20 minutes without locking up.
I am going to buy a nice new mobo and an XP2600+, but i don't have the cash on-hand to buy any 333Mhz RAM.
okay, sob story aside...
I will buy the 333Mhz RAM later, but I need a working computer ASAP.
Will my computer run AT ALL with my old 266Mhz RAM and the 333FSB CPU?
Any definite response will be greatly appreciated, as this stupid mobo I have now is liable to BSOD me every hour on the hour...
Oh btw, if it makes any difference to your answers, the mobo i'm buying is a BioStar M7NCD Nforce2
