Hi Armoire

Yes.  You can add the PC133 memory to the machine without having to remove the PC100 memory.  However, the memory will all run at the slower rate (PC100).

Hope this helps

in normal cases you will be able to use it. Using both together However certain mobo might be a little bit sensitive on certain brand memory. To be on the safe side, geta more well known brand like kingston ram.

FIY, if your mobo type is a BX type board or lower, you wont really achieve the maximum perfromance of yuor new pc133 ram as the bottleneck lies in your mobo. In such case, you new pc133 ram only running at 100 mhz
