Integral RAM and Different speeds

Hey guys, I currently have 2gb of crucial 667 mhz ram and would like an upgrade. I have been looking at some integral 800 mhz
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Integral-IN2T2GNXNFX-DDR2-2GB-800MHz-CL6-PC2-6400-BNIB-/260946746022?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_MemoryRAM_JN&hash=item3cc1a35aa6

I havnt heard of this brand before so i was wondering if any of you could shed some light?

Also could i use this with the crucial ram or is it not good to have ram running at different speeds?

Thanks in advance

More about integral speeds
  1. your pc will slow down the ram to the lower speed

    though your motherboard may not support the 800mhz module

    for example if i put 1333mhz ddr3 and 1600mhz ddr3 in my motherboard it will work fine

    but all the modules will clock down to 1333mhz

    so only if your motherboard supports the integral memory would it work--but all modules would be at the same

    speed--ie 667mhz not half at 667mhz and half at 800mhz
  2. My mobo supports the module.

    So have you heard of integral. Is it a good brand?
  3. yeah have heard of them

    but never used any

    just google to see what people say about whether they are any good

    and read the ebay sellers feedback from other people who bought some

    he does take returns on it just in case
  4. Yh but im thinking of getting this - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Komputerbay-2GB-DDR2-PC2-8500-1066Mhz-240-Pin-DIMM-2-GB-DESKTOP-RAM-/140673399225?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_MemoryRAM_JN&hash=item20c0c9b9b9 At first i thought it would be some cheap peice of crap but reveiws seem to be very good
  5. why not just buy identical to what you have direct from crucial?

    definately going to be compatible then

  6. Because i dont want more 667 ram and their 800 or 1066 mhz ram is very expensive and doesnt get very good reveiws
  7. Hi :)

    I own computer shops in the UK....

    Its not as easy as that....

    Sometimes different speed and make ram will just NOT work together.....they do NOT aall just slow down to the lower speed...

    They may not even boot the machine....

    Get the same speed as a minimum.

    All the best Brett :)
