I am going to buy 2 more gigs of ram for my upgrade to vista x64. On Newegg they have the Mushkin ram I have in my computer now for $70, and a set of A-Data with the same specs for $60 -$10 mail in rebate($50 total). Would i be able to use the a-data ram in my computer or would I have to buy the same set of Mushkin again. I am asking becuase I have read about people who have compatability issues where the new ram is not recognized.Thanks.
I have a similar question that might sound stupid.
I have 2gb of Corsair 8500C5D and I want to upgrade to something higher than 4gb. Can I get 2x2gb of Corsair 6400C5DHX and just add that to what I have now for a total of 6gb. They have slightly different timings. The 8500 is 5-5-5-15 the 6400 is 5-5-5-18. I dont really know how much affect the timings have. What would the best memory to add to the memory I have or would it make more sense to change to 4x2gb 800.
