Are you asking if you add faster memory will it improve performance or are you asking if you replace the memory?
If you add faster memory and mix it with the slower memory, all memory will run at the speed of the slowest chip you have installed.

Please elaborate on what you have and what you want to do since your System specs state 3GB of ram and you are asking about 512MB of ram.

Also, DDR2 ram is more expensive than the current DDR3 that is the current standard, so I would try not to spend too much money on DDR2 as it won't work with newer systems so you would be basically throwing away your money.

Not much difference - hardly noticable in "real" use. Download and run CPU-Z then post the CPU screen, mainboard screen, memory and SPD screens. Your CPU is quite good at overclocking to 3.2GHz (without OCing DDR2-800 speed RAM).

IF YOU HAVE PC2-6400 (400MHz) RAM then run the multiplier at x8, BUS at 400 yields core speed of 3.2GHz - keeps clocks nice (FSB-DRAM divider = 1:1) and makes the RAM very happy.

Help me overclock my Intel Quad-Core Q6600
I've had an Intel Quad core Q6600 and just gave it a revamp with a good cleaning & new thermo paste. I'd like to try and overclock it to get more performance out of my computer. After 2 years, its not as snippy as it used to be. How do I go about doing this?
