Closed One gig of PC2-5300 vs 2 gigs of PC2-4200 Tags: Memory Computers Last response: February 12, 2013 2:11 AM in Memory Share impulse88 February 12, 2013 12:01:49 AM 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? More about : gig pc2 5300 gigs pc2 4200 Best solution dmid February 12, 2013 1:01:09 AM 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.
