I would never mix ram with different specs, its too easy for you to start getting errors that way. A second problem is that XP will not use more than 3 gigs of ram so you are wasting the money buying any more than that. I have mixed different ram and got away with it. I also have tried this on some computers and they would not even boot up. Asus motherboards are the ones most likely to NOT boot up with mixed ram.
