    Yes, however all of the RAM will run at the speed of the slowest chip.

    so i guess the question is:

    2gb @ 3200
    3gb @ 2700

    any insight?

    Unless you're doing some intensive 3d modelling or video rendering, I can't think of where you'd benefit having 3 gigs of RAM over 2. I'd go with the faster RAM.
