    Hi

    i have a Toshiba Satelite A100-200 i want to upgrade to 4 gb.
    I'm thinking of installing 2x 2GB kingston kvr667d2s5/2g 667mhz pc 5300 ddr2.

    Every time i do a check on websites it tells me to install PC24200 ddr2 533.
    Will the above work the same as the 4200 ddr2 533hz as the ones i want to put in are a lot cheaper.
    Thanks.

    Will both sets of ram pergorm exactly the same as long as they are paired.

    Thanks

    Hi

    Everything depends on your FSB (front side bus).
    If the FSB supports 667Mhz then the inserted PC5300 667Mhz modules will run with full performance (667Mhz).

    But if the FSB supports only 533Mhz then the RAM modules will run only at 533Mhz even you would use the faster modules (PC5300)

    So what you should do is to check the FSB value. You can install a hardware diagnostic tool (i.e Everest home edition) in order to check the FSB.

    Cheers
