I have an old Intel computer with a D845gvsr motherboard with only 512MB of RAM (PC3200-DDR400). I added another stick of PC3200-DDR400 in the second memory slot and it seems to run better. My question is why my BIOS says I have DDR266. I have Speecy and Everest programs and they both identify my memory correctly. One other question- I also have a stick of !GB DDR266-PC2100 memory that's good so would I be better off using it in slot #1 and one of my 512MB sticks in slot #2. I'm not sure if the slower speed would hurt more than the increased memory would help. Also how important is it to have the memory in slots 1 and 2 matched? thanks as always
