good evening everyone

I have a question.. and I know it's a repeat, but this is now a slightly different setup. I'm using a celeron 2.4ghz/128/400fsb cpu, to set up a system. my question is, what would be the best ram to use, and what should I set the ratio to, in bios? i remember jam telling me the intel ratio should be 4:5 or 5:4 i forget :)

I always say it's best to doublecheck.

With a P4 or P4 based Celeron, the RAM frequency should run faster than the CPU frequency. The correct ratio depends on the CPU...it will be either 3:4 or 4:5.

With a 400MHz FSB CPU, the correct ratio is 3:4. In other words, CPU at 100MHz frequency, RAM at 133MHz frequency.

DDR266 is all you need.
