Windows 7: Mismatched Ram Slow, will matched sticks fix issue?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

The real question is...would you even notice? The answer is no, you won't. Save the money for an SSD. People get FAR to hung up on memory speeds and timings to ever step back and wonder if it is a noticeable difference. Given you the memory you quoted, you'd be improving in one facet and degrading in another. Don't even bother with the time or money.

As said, put the money towards an SSD. This is a great time to be buying, and there are some great deals to be had on SSDs.
