Mixing Brands of RAM
I currently have two sticks of OCZ Performance PC3200 (one each 256MB & 512MB, unbuffered) in my computer. The mother board is able to accept 3 strips of unbuffered RAM. I want to add another strip (probably 512MB, maybe 1GB). The mother board will handle up to 2GM RAM. Would it be best to install another strip of the same brand and series or could I use (with no difference) another brand? Also, would anyone care to speculate if adding a 512MB or 1GB will give me a noticeable performance increase? I just had a new mother board and CPU installed, I went from a AMD XP2200+ (266 FSB) to a XP3000+ (400 FSB) and really don't notice much if any difference in performance when processing with PhotoShop.
