A faster ram speed will allow the computer to run a little faster provided that the board will accept the faster ram.
If it will take the faster ram, you do not want to put the slower in there at the same time. Doing so will most likely allow the computer to work, but the ram speed will default to the slower speed.

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
