  1. When installing the memory, should i put the 1 GIG stick first and the 256 stick in the second slot or the other way around? Does it matter? Which way would be faster?

    shouldnt matter as ram speeds are stupidly fast, in the big picture most people try to match ram speed. if not an option, then try the lower number (??ns) if it were my machine and they were the same speed i would do the larger stick first. thats just me
