Upgrading ram size

I have lately been experiencing problems related to RAM and wish to upgrade for better performance etc.... I currently have 6144MB 800MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x2048 + 2x1024].I want to upgrade to 8gigs by removing two of the 1gb slots.My question is....is there a problem with having two different types of RAM(example:corsair and my one above) and which is the best to upgrade to?

cheers

You can, but if they aren't rated the same the faster ram will be held back by the slower sticks limits.

Had you gone to crucial.com as I suggested in my previous post, you'd have your new RAM by now.

As each computer is made up of different parts, you can't just put any RAM into your system. You are trying to do it the hard way - go ahead - but it's a jungle out there.

Download the scanner from Crucial, run it and you'll be able to sleep tonight.

Click on the link below and you'll see what my scanning result looks like:

Obviously crucial.com want you to buy from their own company... but you don't have to!!!

The scanning process is a free service.
