Based on what?  I am writing this message from a Cyrix machine.  Works

If you are referring to the overall performance being lower than the
actual clock rate would indicate, then yes, a Cyrix 233MHz chip will
*not* be as fast as an Intel 233MHz CPU.  Clock rates are only useful
for comparing chips by the same manufacturer within the same family. 
Nevertheless, without a GUI running, the 300MHz CPU is to be taken

Actually the price for PC100 memory from Intrex is generally *higher*
than mail order averages.  That's why I like to site them as a price
source.  Give you wiggle room to account for fluctuating prices on
