Mismatching memory

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was going to upgrade me memory the other as I still on use 4GB and I probably want to get more soon, but the memory I use now isnt that old but Newegg and Tigr dont carry it anymore. When I bought it it was only 65, and amazon sstill carries it but for 100. WOuld it be fine to fine some OC ram with similar specs and use them together?

SO OCZ left the memory market...... explains why there ram is so much now.

if you can find ram that has the closet specs you should be fine but best would be to get the exact same kit if possible.

Just my luck, OCZ would decide to stop making ram, after I decide to use their ram....

What are your exact speed/timings/voltage?
Finding one that is the same might be your best bet
Or you could jump on a good 2x4GB deal, there was a 2x4GB 1600 CL7 kit for just $110 lately
