http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=309760&CatId=832 OK so i finally found the perfect RAM. The thing is my system takes 400mhz ram instead of 800, can i mix 2 400 and 2 800? Also I have 4 slots total.

Please guys, Sorry for double post but my time is little I only have 10 minutes left or my mom wont buy me it. lol

If you have RDRAM in your computer already it should be OK. The BIOS will automatically run all memory at the lower speed.

I've never heard of RAM as fast as 800MHz, but I'm no huge expert on memory.

Most (well, every one I've heard of) memory modules will run at the fastest speed either the system or themselves can take - whichever is slower. It should work.

By the way - make sure your computer supports RAMBUS RAM - that stuff will only work in a small percentage of computers. If you have an early Intel Pentium 4 Prescott (I think) then there is a chance it needs RAMBUS but if it isn't, then it most likely won't.

I would give it more thought, and make sure you have the right RAM - different RAM needs different components.

Anytime.

Like reven said. Make sure your computer supports it. Best bet, is to take a stick from your computer and go to a shop, ask for more information on it. If the RAM doesn't have any distinct markings on it.

No, you can't. If you're already running DDR SDRAM, then your computer obviously supports that, which means it will not even fit (let alone supprt) RDRAM. Don't worry about it, though; RDRAM is terrible by today's standards, even if it did boast high clock speeds.

OK, then; you need to get a new computer. Don't waste your money on anything other than PC400 if you're not going to heed the above; anything faster will default back to PC400. And that's assuming your computer will even recognise anything other than PC400.
