    I have a gateway MX8711 laptop. My processor is 1.60GHz, 533MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache and im looking to upgrade my memory. Would adding 2 1gig PC2-5300 667MHz 200-pin SODIMM DDR2 memory work well with the computer even though it is 667MHz and the processor is only at 533MHz. The factory installed memory (2 512mb) is also at 533MHz which I would not use anymore. This is the link for the memory that I am looking at http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=202812946&loc=0#cRevSec and this is the link for my system specs http://www.gateway.com/retail/mx8711.php. Crucial says that it is compatable but I just want to make sure.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Faster memory will run fine at the lower speed.
