    CPU/RAM compatibility question

    I'm building a box for a friend mostly from spare parts here. I've got a Elitegroup K75SA Mainboard and a Duron 700MHz CPU. Now I've got to buy some RAM and as the board can take both SD and DDR RAM and I might get an XP 1700+ CPU in a few weeks I'm wondering if it's possible to put in PC266 RAM with the Duron CPU. Obviously it won't run at full speed as the Duron has a FSB of 100MHz but that way I won't have to change RAM when I put in the XP processor later.

    Thanks for you input,

    I did that once with a similar mb and it worked fine.

    Yeah, it would work. Like you said, it wont be run at full speed though since your Duron has a slow FSB. However, you CANNOT put SD Ram and DDR Ram together at the same time.
