hey that would be great thanks!

in the mean time, i guess i'll just keep a look out for RAM @ lower speed but more memory to be on sale.

thanks a bunch!

Hey guys,

So I'm not having any luck finding cheap ram of what I need.

Would it be a really terrible thing to buy 4gb of 1066mhz ram and just combine it with my 4gb of 800mhz ram? Cuz if I buy 8gb of 1066 ram the cost will be thru the roof so I'm just wondering if mixing kits is a big nono in the ocn community. Will it ruin my performance in any way?

The AMD IMC will only handle 2 sticks of 1066 in most cases.

As in my processor won't allow me to have 8gbs? What if I had two diff kits with diff speeds, one kit at 1066 and one at 800? Would my performance be lowered and/or would my mobo be upset there are two different speeds?
