I am wondering if it would be ok to mix these 2 kinds of Ram

and

the second one(wintec) I already own. I am thinking about buying the first one (patriot)

oh and I have this MOBO with windows 7 RC 64-bit. if that matters to anyone.

When mixing ram you really need the same speed, timing, and voltage. I have found that when you start mixing ram with different timings and voltage you have problems. Why not buy the same as you already have.

It is sold out right now and I could only do 1 rebate per household thing. I guess I will wait for something to come along at the same timing and voltage than. I can live on 4 gigs for awhile. I just wanted to find another 4 gigs for some good overkill. thanks.
