    Pardon my ignorance...

    Can you mix PC2100 with PC2700 or PC3200, etc.?

    Thanks,
    Nate

    You can use 3200 as 2700 or 2100
    You can use 2700 as 2100 not 3200
    You can not use 2100 as 2700 or 3200

    This means you can clock your ram lower than it's actual speed but not
    higher.

    You should be able to do that. From what I've read and heard you may want to
    try your best to get the same brand of memory for compatiblity sake. There
    should for the most part be no problem, but it's preferable to be aware that
    mixing different brands of RAM can cause misrecognition by the mb.

    Thanks for the reply. Let me revise my question a little bit... I
    currently have 512 mb of PC2100 in my Asus A7N266-VM and want to add another
    stick. Does it need to be 2100 or can it be any of the others? That's what
    I meant by mixing - sorry for not being clear.

    Thanks,
    Nate
