AMD T-bird 750 oc'd 810
windows 5 (win2k)
western digital 7200 rpm ata 100 40 gig drive... i cant think of anything else that is pertinent to the memory
RIGHT NOW i have
128 megabytes PC133 CAS 2 memory, 7 nanosecond.
Going to waste i have
32 megabytes pc100 cas 3 7.5 nanosecond memory.
I dont know whether or not i should slow down the WHOLE system and plug in my 32 megabytes of memory, or if i should just use the 128. Now its easy to say just use the 128 its faster, but my system currently is using about 155000 k of memory (as reportd by win2k) , that means its using at least 20 megs of swap file data. occasionally it will go up to 170000 or 180000 k of memory usage. I dont have the means to get a cheapy 64 meg chip, and 32 megabytes would realy cut down on swap file usage(windows frequently cuts me out of my programs to increase swap file size) . SO do i use the 32 megs and slow everything down? or not?
will my pc133 128 meg chip still give me ANY performance gain over hte pc100 if i plug the pc100 in?
