If you are running your FSB at 146.7 then your memory is running at DDR 293. Be warned, if you buy some DDR 266 value ram it might not be stable at that speed.

I've decided to splurge and get the DDR 400 and Crucial seems to be a reputable brand. It's only 25 dollars more. And thanks for the warning..I had no idea. It seems stable on the simpletech pc266 I have now.

Good choice in the long run...Always better to have more and not need it than to need more and NOT have it
