    Hi, I just bought some new PC3200 ram for my Winfast NF4SK8AA mobo, I have an athlon 64 3500+ processor and a evga video card. The ram stick I just bought is a Centon 1GB stick of pc3200 and I have 512 Mb of infineon pc3200 ram(2x256). I also have 512 MB of samsung pc2700 ram. My question is, should I use only the pc3200 ram in the computer and have 1.5 gb of ram or have 2gb of ram inc. the 512mb of pc2700? I use the computer for some video editing and gaming, and I have little or no intention of overclocking the ram.
    Thanks in advance,

    If your machine supports the PC2700 then the machine will most likely make the PC3200 run at PC2700 speed. I wouldn't advise mixing the memory.
