    I have a system with an AOpen AX6BC motherboard presently fitted with
    128 MB of PC100 SDRAM as a single DIMM. I want to increase the amount of
    RAM and can only get 256 MB DIMMs of PC133 SDRAM.

    Can the two types (PC100 and PC133) be mixed of should I simply replace
    the 128 MB DIMM with a 256 MB DIMM?

    Are there any other things I need to be aware of when getting the DIMMs?

    PC133 modules should work fine with PC100. HOWEVER, for 256 MB modules,
    they must be of a certain type to work with the Intel 440BX chipset
    (which the AX6BC has). See this page for more:

    To guarantee compatibility, you could go to and search
    for RAM for your specific motherboard.
