    This one had been argued ad nauseum on techspot. While yes it will work on most systems, some motherboards and configurations will cause problems. I have experienced severe issues with mixed systems so I don't recommend it. Others will tell you it's 100% ok. So go ahead and try it. If you wind up with problems, you'll have to choose between the two types.
