This might be a dumb question but, is it ok to mix RAM module sizes. If I get RAM that is made by the same company but use two sticks of 1 gig and two sticks of 512, would that work? Of course it will be the same speed and type and all that.

That should be fine, however be warned companies change chips on their ram a lot, try to get the cas settings and voltages exactly the same. It will make it easier for the mothboard. Sizes of the matched pairs shouldn't matter tho.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
