The 2GB of DDR2 800MHz RAM will just run at 333MHz speed.

hey sam_fisher thanks for the help . but according to a site i hardly remember it says that if you upgrade ram to higher frequency more than the one installed on ur motherboard then it gives only 2-3% speed performance.. is it???
really looking forward to ur reply.

If you ever install memory that is of a high frequency, such as in your case, the faster memory will default to the lower memory's speed. You'll get a performance boost out of having the extra 2GB of RAM, but your memory speed won't increase. What Operating System are you running? XP?

windows 7
so my specs would look like this:
2gb ddr2 333mhz + 2gb ddr2 800mhz = 4gb ddr2 333mhz
do i am right???
