Default Help me with my RAM

Okay so up until yesterday I had 1gb ram in my system, but it was a mix of 512 PC2700, and 512 PC3200. I recently purchased another 1gb(2x512mb) of PC3200. So I have 1.5gb of pc3200 and 512mb of pc2700. I am wondering how I should configure these. I know that if I include the pc2700, it forces my ram to run at a lower speed. (In this case ~183mhz, because of my overclock)

So what I am asking is if I should use the 2gb at the lower speed, or the 1.5gb at the full 200mhz. Since I use this computer more for gaming then anything else am I right in thinking that 1.5gb of 200mhz would be better for me?

(I dont know if it matters but the rest of my specs are: 3800x2(Oc to 4200x2), x1950pro 256mb (AGP), Asus A8V motherboard.)

Try it both ways. If you get more performance from 1.5 GB 200MHZ then stick with it. If no difference keep them all.
