Specs: Windows XP, Amd ? 2 Gb ddr2 667MHZ
Hy i have 2 ram sticks both 1gb 1 800mhz and 1 667 mhz.First i have used only one with 800mhz because it's just better and it was recomended as being beetter but if i use both ramms my motherboard recons all 2gb on 667 mhz and if i enter into BIOS i can set both to be on 800mhz but i'm not sure if it;s healthy so what is better ?
Using 1 stick with 800 mhz or both on 667 ?
motherboard GA-M52S-S3P rev1.0 CPU amd athlon 2 x2 240 GPU nvidia geforce 7300SE\7200GS

I would think that even if you CAN set your BIOS to 800 MHz for that RAM (and you probably shouldn't for stability reasons), the slower 667 MHz stick will limit your RAM from running at 800 MHz; but, the difference is minimal in b/w 800 & 667. You're only as fast as your weakest link.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!

My 1gb ddr2 667 is capable of 750mhz(stable) without adjusting memory voltage. Ddr2 667 & 800= 667, make sure timings are similar(use cpu z to check mem timings).

Those weren't stupid questions. If you don't know ask. An example of a stupid question is when I worked in the grocery store during college, and someone actually came up to me and asked me where the milk was (Ummm...uhhhh...maybe the DAIRY section 'ya imbecile).

I'm still surprised at how many ppl refuse to ask questions or do something about a problem or issue, thus ignoring it, when they really should simply just ask questions. Tech ppl even do this.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
