How to determine BUS Speed?

Hello All

I want to upgrade my RAM to 128 MB But I don't know how to find out the bus speed of my system, 100 MHz or 133 MHz. Can you help me with that? Where should I look to determine this? What RAM should I get?

Can I use 133 MHz RAM if my CPU BUS speed is 100 MHz?

Thanks for your time :)

My System is a PII 300 - 64MB RAM - Windows 95.

Try Sisoft Sandra and identify your motherboard.
PC133 is theoretically backward compatible with PC100.

Thanks a lot everybody. My motherboard is a Redfox, as far as I know the company doesn't exist anymore. Its really a primitive thing. Its a 440LX thats for sure.

I'll buy a new machine a few months later. So I'm avoiding any major upgrades on this one. I think 128 MB RAM will liven it up quite nicely.

I have a ATI All-In-Wonder 8 MB video card, (it has a TV tuner too) I know its not at all meant for serious gaming, but NFS runs well enough on it, the only game I play. Do you guys think gaming might improve if I upgrade my 64 MB RAM to 128 MB?
