My brothers computer has SDRAM, he has one stick thats
64MB SDRAM PC100 and another stick thats 128MB SDRAM PC133
but there are both running at 100. Are you shore there running
at 333 and not 266, and if they are running at 266 you should
be fine. But if there both really running at 333, then the one stick
that only can do 266 will die out.

yeah i am like 98% sure that they are running at 333 but my pc is running great, it doesnt crash or anything, it might be that one is running at 266 and the other at 333??, or the DDR400 stick is making up the extra speed difference of the 266 one??, i tried running the ddr266 stick at 333 without the 400 strip and it doesnt work.

RAM has a maximum speed specification, and running it slower isn't a problem. Running it faster won't "burn it up", but it may just not get the data read or written in time, and you'll have bad data.
