I recently installed a AMD 300 mmx and noticed a good preformance increase (SI at 95) Two weeks later I removed 64 meg of SIMM modules and installed a single 128M DIMM module, my system preformance dropped to SI 64, this is where I started with my cyrix 200 processor and 64 meg of memory. System board Tekram P5T30/B4

This is a TX chipset motherboard. A TX chipset can only cache the first 64 Megs of RAM. Going over 64 Megs of ram (Even though the board supports it), can decrease the performance of the system.
