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...

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 ram speeds

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

My mobo supports the module.

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

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 :)
