    Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    What exactly model of Acer desktop do u have?. But if the rig is currently using DDR2-800, is almost sure that support DDR2-667. BUT bear in mind that if you install 667MHz with 800MHz, the speed of all your RAM will be the lower speed.
  2. So.. What is best?

    4 Gb 667 or 3 Gb 800 ??
  3. 4GB 667

If you take a computer in for service in these parts...most likely you will end up with pirated software and counterfeit parts, so I am so happy you could help me work this out. Take care!! pam
