    okay, i bought an asrock p4s61 board and 2 x 512 pc3200 ram, now i get the board and it says that the first dimm supports 3200, the second 2700 the 3rd 2100, now i know if i use the first 2 slots i will only have a gig at 2700, but i also have a 256mb 2100 in my current computer, should i put it in the 3rd slot or no? Would that give me all the ram at 2100? Thanks for the help

    RAM will always run at the lowest latency, so you can use PC3200 and PC2700 together but both will run at 2700. So if your board has 3 latencies which is really odd and all slots are filled then you'll run at the lowest speeds.

    what kind of cpu are you using? if its a 800MHz FSB then i'd personally only use one stick of the pc3200 and thats it. However its its the 533MHz FSB, then you could use all three.
