RAM Upgrade Q

I currently am using http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but one of the sticks recently started giving errors so I am trying to RMA it. In the meantime I want to add more RAM if I upgrade the CAS and or speed will it help, since 2 will be fast and 1(2) will be slower. Because I read some where that one or both of those only work as slow as the slowest one.
Considering:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Faster CAS

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... "Faster Speed/Cheap"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... "", HQ

Will any of these work at their potential if I use my previous RAM alongside with it.

From the RAM you listed my recommendation is none of them. Get yourself another set of Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB (2 x 2GB) Model 996586. Also, I don't recommend mixing brands with different ICs, or mixing Frequency, CAS, Voltage or Type.

When you RMA your RAM then send BOTH stick back in exchange for a new matched kit.

Ok thats what I thought I would do, also how long does it usually take companies to respond to RMA's?

From the time Mushkin receives the RAM, 2-3 business days to process, and whatever time shipping takes has been my experience. Just pack them well in a box.
