alright so i just got 1gb of ram and i have a question. if i have two different sticks of ram and they run at different MHz will that hinder my performance and if so can i just take the old one out and pop the new one in and thats it?

As far as I know, it will affect performance, but Google will help you here. And yes, you can just take one out and pop in the other.

yes. having them run at different Mhz will affect performance. and RAM changes are quick and fast just like that. turn the comp off, unplug everything and just pop the new one in.

thanx guys. i checked google and it was giving me all this crap that didn't have anything to do with it

you sir are a poopmouth.

but ts, i don't think ram working at two different clockspeeds will even work with each other, but if they will you will definitely be affected. always try to match your ram.

Dont buy too much RAM, some pc's wont recognize the full amount that you have plugged in depending on what bit system the OS runs on.

That's like 4GB+, on a 32-bit operating system...... TS said he purchased 1 GB.......

The RAM speed will be affected. It will use the slower speed of the two. for example: If you have a PC2700 and a PC3200 stick of RAM, when installed on the same computer they will both run at PC2700 speeds.

What will happen is that it will run both sticks at the lower ones clock rate. So it will be like having two of the lower ones.

ummmmm..... isn't that the point of "the pit"? to ask random shizza and make random threads?
#16
i can't believe i made a thread about this. i just popped it in and took the old ones out and that was it. can someone lock this so it dies?

If you have two different speeds, the faster one will clock itself down to match the slow one.
