I've heard some time ago now that using 2 different types of memory can lead to not getting the full potential out of the RAM sticks themselves. So here is my proposed question...

I have a OCZ 2x1MB RAM [PLATINUM] and OCZ 2x2MB RAM [GOLD].
Currently degraded to a Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit from Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

I have also taken out the OCZ 2x1MB RAM [PLATINUM] due to the statement above to see if there was a tale behind this unless it is just a myth, so I was wondering if anyone knew any real 'statistics' on this?

Many thanks.

Never really knew much about RAM does it improve FPS

Think it improves loading times.

It would be better leaving both pairs in. (hope you mean GB instead of MB)
You do need 64-bit then, if your using 32 bit you dont need to put them in.

Windows 32 bit systems can only use 33XXmb of ram, so if you put all your rams in it would be 5GB which about 2 wouldnt be used.

Hahaha! I definitely mean GB. I never really saw a difference taking it out tbqh, but just thought I'd pose the questions see if anyone had any answers

Might just reinstall 64-bit

If you reinstall back to 64bit, you can use all that memory.

That does sound rather warming

Well ye... At the older computers you couldnt even have 2 different rams...
Now the only obstacle is, the RAM`s must have same MHz...

The same MHz?
I know RAM in GBs and that's about it I'm afraid
Think I'm slightly lost

Well rams have GB and MHz...

Like:

Kingston 2GB 1333MHz

Or Kingston 1GB 800MHz or it can be Kingston 2GB 800MHz

RAMs have both, as MHz as GB...
Just take care you`ll buy or whatever your intetnions are RAMs with same MHz..

There is a chance that I`m wrong... But bought like that worked for me,, As far as I know I7m 95% sure... lol
