I have a Sony Vaio pcv-rs 520 running windows xp sp2. I have started doing some digital video and need more storage and, I think, more RAM.

First question, with regard to RAM, Sony says I need DDR PC2700 333MHz 64-bit 2.5 volt. Sony also says I need to pair the modules. I already have a pair of 256s in there. I happen to have a couple of Kingston Value Ram 512s. One is PC2700 333MHz 2.5 volt. The other is PC3200 400 MHz 2.6 volt. Can I pair the first with the second?

Second question. I will install a second hard drive. It is a Seagate 300 gig. Should I install the ram or the hard drive first? Can I do both at the same time once I open the case?

Thanks you for your assistance

That is what I wanted to do, but I thought you could not do that after 24 hours. Sorry.
