I just built a 100mhz K6-2/300 with one 128mb pc100 7ns ram and it flys it beats the heck out of a P-II 300 with the same ram  at 100mhz.  I used the FIC 2013 as my motherboard choice it's an atx board, but  I almost got the FIC 503+, at board because you can clock it to 112mhz.  The 64 mb problem only existed on a few manufactures motherboards and the problem was corrected with bios updates along time ago, I havn't heard anything of recent problems, there is quite a noticable difference with my system running 128mb vs. 64mb, ram is cheap and sometime it's eaiser upgrading you ram than shelling out bucks and time to upgrade your cpu and motherboard.  In addition, if your are going to do and upgrade to a 100mhz do your home work on which Motherbord is best for you, Case in point the FIC motherboards have alot of jumpper settings that can be quite confusing, when you can get the same performance from another manufactures board, with out as much hassle.  The links listed below are a good starting points to upgrade your system...       RAIDER187
