Hey there. Just wanted to know, if I have 2gb ddr2 800 installed (in 2x 1 gb sticks) and I add a ddr2 533 1g stick, will it be worth it? I assume the 3gb total will then run in 533 and no longer be dual channel. Is 1gb extra RAM worth it?
I have a BIOSTAR A770 A2G+ m/b with Kingston ValueRAM CL5 1.8v memory.
Typically dual channel does not provide as siginificate a gain as the total quantity of memory. I would suggest installing the ddr2 533 and trying to oc this to get a bit faster. You may however see a bit slower response as there is a difference between the 800 and 533. Do you use many memory intensive programs?
