    Next time, please use a proper thread title and don`t shout. I.E don`t use capitals.

    DDR ram is double data rate. So, a bus speed of 133mhz=266mhz which is correct.

    Typing in all capitals, is considered to be shouting and is frowned upon. Since you weren`t aware of that, there`s no problem. I guess we all have to learn sometime lol.

    Take a look at this thread HERE, it contains some useful info on posting etc.

    Yes, you have 266mhz ram. No you won`t need to change your cpu. Go and read this Ram thread HERE. It should help with your ram questions.

    Regards Howard :)
