    I have a motherboard that supports PC2100 RAM

    I have one stick 512 of Crucial PC2700 in right now and I have a stick of 256 Generic PC2100 ... think it would be a bad thing to mix them? Should I stick with the crucial or put in the generic too?

    throw both in, if your computer starts up, recognizes all 768MB, and doesn't act up or do anything funny fo the first five minutes, then you should be fine.

    You wouldn't have these problems if you'd just stuck with your i386. :)

    Leave the PC2100 out, it will bottleneck your PC2700 to that speed and you don't want that. You're better off with just 512MB of PC2700.

    But the mobo only suppors 2100, so it shouldn't matter.

    the mobo will just drop the pc2700 to pc2100 speeds (hopefully).

    it shouldnt make a difference unless u were running it the other way around.

    i give u the all clear for this one :bithumb:
