I have an old ddr2 2gig chip. I think its 800speed.
If i buy a 1000 speed, mobos now days should be smart enough to auto detect and run both chips at 800 right? my mobo is maybe 2 years old. 2.7ghz amd dual core sata type board.
would the ram be more stable if i plug the 800 chip into slot 1 and the 1k into slot 2 ?
or will it most likely not matter?
anything else i should be aware of before i buy a 20 dollar chip in the mail?
