I think I know the answer to this question, but I want to make sure. Can I combine a PC2100 DDR memory card & a PC3200 DDR memory card on the same mother board?

You can. The faster stuff will slow down to match the slower stuff.

i would not mix them... neil stated, the faster module will be reduced to the slower speed , therefore defeating the purpose of the faster module BUT from what i am reading it can also cause problems when playing games etc... Info @ http://www.techspot....er-mix-RAM.html for more info

however , it can be done in some cases ( mix's and mobo's )


PS: if it is duel channel supported ( the mobo ) , it will not be active if not the same sized modules are installed/fitted ( and same brand/manufactuer modules would be recommended to be used )
