    PC133 or PC100?

    I'm planning to overclock a Cel2 which means I need to buy new ram cause I have PC66's. I'm probably going to use a 100mhz fsb. Both the PC133 and the PC100's are around the same price so which should I buy? Will the PC133 work as good as the PC100 at 100mhz fsb?

    There's no doubt in my mind. Get the PC133 SDRAM. It should be ~$20 more then the PC100 SDRAM but well worth the difference. With a Celeron II, you will top out around ~100-110MHz (varies from chip to chip and with cooling) and at least you'll know it's not your RAM holding you back.
