Hi, I'm building a new system and have become stuck with the following problem. In a new mobo config (MSI K8MM-V) I will have a new PC3200 512MB ram stick, I would like to know if i should also use an older PC2700 512MB stick I've got, or just the new one on it's own until I can get another PC3200 stick. Would the older one slow the system down noticably or will the extra mem make up for any speed deficit?
I will be getting two 1GB sticks in amonth or two, so this will only be temporary situation.
I'm just going to have to run some tests, zipping a large folder, mp3'ing some wavs etc., and encode an AVI, to get some benchmarks and then do same again with the older stick in to see the difference.
