ok so i have a gig of PC2-5300 and a gig of PC2-4200 in my computer currently. with the 5300 nerfed to the speed of the 4200 i was wondering if it would be better or worse to just have one gig of 5300?

2GB of slower memory is better than 1GB of faster memory in nearly all use cases these days.

Now had you asked if 8GB slow was better than 4GB of fast, that would be a closer call since you probably wouldn't use more than 4GB most of the time.
