    i have a pair of Geil golden dragon dual channel (2x256) pc3200.... i got another 512, but it isn't the golden dragon series... its some platinum series or something... will my new ram be 100% compatible with my old ram..

    Would it be better if i returned my new memory and got the exact same as my old, that way all 4 stick would be identical?

    -Thanks in advance

    You're unlikely to get help in this forum within an hour, but when you do get it it'll be high quality.

    AFAIK, it should be compatible with your other ram as long as it's the same speed.

    Uhh, you shouldn't have any problems unless you try running the new ram with your old ram in dual channel.

    dual channel gets pretty picky at times.

    Remember, it runs at the speeds of the slowest stick... So check your FSB and latencies... The difference between the higher-end memory modules usually has to do with being lower latency.
