  1. Hi

    Ive just purchased a 2x 1GB Dual Channel RAM Kit for my pc.

    I was wondering whether I should just use the new RAM in Dual Channel giving me a total of 2GB or whether I should put my old 512MB stick in as well, giving 2.5GB but no Dual Channel???

    The CAS timings for both types of stick are the same.

    I am using an AMD 64 3200 on an MSI Neo4 Platinum mobo.
