Default ram

Can anyone tell me if using two different types of brands of ram will affect my computers performance.

AMD XP 2500+ barton
Dane-Elec 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200 - OEM
160 GB WD
80 GB WD
ECS l7s7a2 mobo

want to purchase a stick of :

Geil Value Series Golden Dragon 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200 - OEM (its on sale and it has better reviews than the Dane)

but dont know if i have to stick with the Dane?

Please advise?

Same frequency is critical,,but is would work

however, the second question is performance,, how does the Golden Dragon fare against the Dane??

well the memory brand you are currently using is bad to begin with. generally stick with the same brand and series for memory.

there have been a lot of incompatibility issues with different RAM brands - I have 2 brands (128MB PC133 Micron Technology and 64MB PC100 Hitashi) with no prob of SDRAM but DDRRAM is different
