Mixing memory

If I have two sticks of 1 gig RAM each (DDR2 800), and I buy two more sticks of 2 gigs each (DDR2 800) for a total of 6gig RAM, can I use all four sticks together? They are same speed, but two are 1gig and the other two are 2gig.

Thanks in advance!

Generally, you can if they are the same speeds and latencies.
-- Do not expect to overclock the RAM, if they are not matched sets.
-- You MAY have to increase the nortbridge voltage a bump ot two in the BIOS.
-- You MAY have to increase the RAM voltages, too.
