Pc 5300 vs pc 6400

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok Guys I finally got my new ram from my grandma

it's 2x 2GB PC 6400.

I installed them and then I put in my 2x1gb's 5300 after it, so essentially I got 6GB Ram, but I heard the PC5300 will make it all run at 5300 speeds, so Instead of 6GB AT PC5300 speeds,

Should I just have 4GB AT PC 6400 Speeds? Or is the full 6gb ram at 5300 speeds okay?

If not is it really worth it to go buy another 2x2gb at pc 6400? so all of it runs at 6400?

First you really don't want it mismatch memory. I can cause you problems. I would go with 2x2gb. And what os do you have?

use the 4gb of 6400, remove the 5300 completely.

I use windows 7 64 bit

So If I take out the 2 extra crappy 1gb 5300's my 6400 i will see a better performance? but only 4gb ram instead of six @ 5300?
