I want to buy this

DDR2 800 (G.Skill NT DDR2 2 GB (1 x 2 GB) PC RAM (F2-6400CL5S-2GBNT))
Timing 5-5-5-15
Cas Latency 5
Voltage 1.8V

will it interfere with my current

DDR2 800 (XMS2 — 2GB DDR2 Memory (CM2X2048-6400C5))
Timing 5-5-5-18
Cas Latency 5
Voltage 1.8V

Or will I have to go with only 1 of these sets.

They might well play together, no guarantees of course, if you try and have problems give me a shout

Thanks Tradesman1, i am ordering it now. I will update here once i get it.
Also, do i need to change anything in BIOS, RAM settings-wise, before i stick it in?

I'd just put them in and see, if a problem, let me know what timings and DRAM voltage shows in the BIOS

I have put it in about an hour ago, i didn't face any problems.
Thanks, Tradesman1.

Glad to hear, if anything crops up, with those generally a slight voltage increase to DRAM voltage will smooth it out, like about + 0.05.......May want to close the thread ;)
