Hi all,

I have quite a number of PCs now and am in the process of 'rationalising' my collection (throwing them out on the orders of 'she who must be obeyed').

I have various RAM chips (just can't bring myself to throw everything out) but I am not clear as to what chips can be used in what boards - for example: -
:?: Can a SDRAM 168 pin PC 133 be installed in any MOBO (assuming it fits of course!!),
:?: If I buy the fastest (and cheapest) DIMMS, as long as they 'fit in the slot' should this be OK
:?: What is the significance of "PC2100, PC2700" - and do I need to be concerned.

Have trawled around the Tom's Hardware site but cannot find the simple answers - I am sure that this has been covered before - can anyone help me please?

Many thanks,

IanL
