It run's at 200 but it act's like 400 hence the name "Double Data Rate"

That's what I was afraid of, I thought it might have some slower running speeds if the ram was of different sizes, but hey maybe I'm wrong!

Hell I told some people I bought more ram and they thought I was nuts, thinking that 1gb alone was far beyond what I need. But hey, I like a fast pc, and I'm quite a gamer too.

I went with the 4x512 though. I looked in my newegg account history and found the exact same ram I ordered before and just reordered it. So I'll have 4x512 of the EXACT same kind of ram.

Which reminds me, you can mix and match different brands of ram, can't ya?
