I have a Socket A CPU that has uses 266 MHz FSB and PC2100 memory. The motherboard supports a CPUs that use 333 and 400 MHz FSB and PC2700 and PC3200 memory.
If I upgraded the CPU to a 400 MHz FSB processor would I also have to upgrade the memory?
Would the new CPU be compatible with the old memory?
(And now the dumb question that I probably know the answer) Should I upgrade the memory as well to take advantage of the faster processor?
More specifics: I’m upgrading from an AthlonXP 1600+ (266 MHz FSB) to an AthlonXP 3000+ (400 MHz FSB).
