Hi, I have a quick question about ram. I have 2 256MB ram sticks PC3200 running at a 200MHz frequency and I recently bought and am now using a 1GB stick PC3200 running at a 400MHz frequency. Both are DDR1. I am wondering if when I install all 3 if it will cause any problems or hinder the performance in any way since 200MHz sounds like a big difference.

It would help to know motherboard, or make/model of computer
I suggest staying away from the lower frequency Ram and keep with the 1 gb for now

If your mobo supports dual channel capability, get yourself another 1gb of exact RAM stick

If putting all three RAM ur machine is not hanging then its totally ok but if we put RAM of different frequency then there will be no sharing of data will take place....
