i have been running a mushkin 3g tri chanel kit on my mother board for over a year now. im looking to upgrade to 8 gigs of muskin dual channel ram my question is can i run my 2x4g dual channel with 2x1g of my 3x1g kit
so basically 8 gigs dual channel new ram and 2 of the previous 3 sticks for a total of 10 gigs? they are going to be the same speed but would both sets run in dual channel if i put them in the proper slots ?

I suggest you keep tri channel. I don't suggest mixing RAM sets as it can be unpredictable.

You could get a quality 3x4GB 12GB kit for under $150.

You can't have both tri channel and dual channel at the same time.
