why not just buy the 2 ballistix strips? And I dont see why you cant run different voltage memory. Back in the pc133 days I had 3 different brands of memory with different voltage and size and never had a problem. Not sure if the new stuff still works like that.

AMD Athlon 3400 socket 754, Radeon X1600 pro 512mb, Crucial Ballistix\'s 1gig DDR 500, MSI K8N Neo Platinum, Maxtor 60gig C: and 200gig D:

Get another stick of the other RAM, or the 512MB version of it, because its not worth the risk of cooking a stick of RAM.


EDIT: Also I would expect the BallistiX to work at 2.6vDDR just its been certified for use upto 2.8vDDR when overclocking.

does actually know the answer to this question or is it so simple that nobody wants to take the time to say "yes that will work" or "no that will not work".
