  1. So i just got myself a GigaByte GA-8IK1100 motherboard, but my PC3200 RAM doesn't come in until late. Can I put my old PC2100 RAM in there with no harm? :confused:


    Motherboard Memory Info:
    Memory
    Type: Dual Channel DDR 400 / 333 ECC support
    Max capacity: 4 GB
    DIMM slots: 6

    There will be no harm putting a PC2100, it will just run at its default speed 266MHz. Its just like placing a 4x AGP card into your mobo when 8X is suppported.
