This is why I tell people never to mix ram, even if you buy identical sets. This is why they the manufacturers test kits as a whole. This is at least true as memory gets faster, I am sure DDR2 800 can be mixed without too many worries.

I KNOW! I was pissed that they didnt have it in the store I went to, but I got it anyways being the stubborn kid that I am.

Damn it. This is such a goddamned pain in the ass.
Maybe I should sell this ram and just buy some of the EXACT same ram I currently have -_-

Seriously though could I ask g.skill to exchange it for me maybe?

No, if you just bought it, take it back to wherever you got it.

I think you have the answer right there, you said that they are two different speed? If that's the case, they have to be equal in every respect, or the system will go the slowest speed by default.

Well, I have it running at the slowest speed, and in fact my old set was even running at a slower speed to begin with, as I set it by default to do so.

Anyways I'm beginning to think it might not actually be my ram causing the problem now because of what happened yesterday....

Heres what i put on the op message:
I have a feeling that it may not actually be my RAM, around the same time that I installed my ram I also installed a program called "key scrambler" which is an anti-keylogging software that gets integrated into firefox. Yesterday I got a BSOD because of the stupid program. It said clearly that the driver for keyscrambler had crashed my system.

I do recall at least half of the times that I have either been opening firefox, or doing something related to it which freezes my PC. I am going to hold off on re-installing my new set of ram for the time being to see if it still freezes, and at that point ill just uninstall keyscrambler to see if it stops the freezing!
So far, other than the BSOD yesterday my computer has yet to freeze, but I have to wait at least another week to really make sure it wont.
