6Gb DDR2 667 vs 4Gb DDR2 1066

Hi guys,
I have a little misunderstanding.
Now i`m running my system (W7/64bit) on 2GB DDR2 667Mhz (no name) and I'm planning to buy 4GB Kingston HyperX 1066. My question is: Should i keep the 2Gb too, or shoul i let only the 4Gb HyperX ?

    Take it out. No need for 6 GB, and theres a good chance your motherboard will detect 667 mhz and set that as the speed for all the RAM to operate at.
  2. stick to matched memory (dump the 2gb), and i wouldn't bother with 1066mhz DDR2 theres no point, and third im using 8gb and im eyeing off 16gb in my next build (a week away) - some users DO use that ammount of ram.
  3. I am inclined to try using all 6gb.
    The 6gb will run at the specs of the lower speed ram, but that is usually not a big impact on real app performance.

    Regardless, it will cost you nothing to try it both ways.

    Considering the low cost of ram these days. I would try to stretch my budget a bit and get a 8gb ram kit.
