Hi. I have a Corsair VALUE SELECT VS1GB400C3 1GB PC-3200 NON-ECC DDR 184PIN DIMM in my system right now. I need more RAM this second, but can only afford one stick right now. Should I get another exact same model, or can I mix this with a regular Corsair Memory VS1GB400C3 1 GB PC-3200 400MHz 184-pin DDR Desktop Memory stick?

Like I said, I can only afford one stick right now, otherwise I would buy two of the regular ones.

I am running a P4 Dual-Core 3.4mghz on an Asus P5P800 mobo with XP.(I know it's old but I am building a new system later this year.)

Thanks for any help.

Preferable to use identical RAM. OTOH, tyhe part number of the second DIMM is identical. It should work.

At the worse, you may need to tweak the memory settings.
