Hi guyz i have 1.5gb of ram. Two ddr400 and one ddr333.
My question is my is my ddr333 stick slowing down my others, because it appears so as the bios loading screen says my ddr speed is 333.
Will i be able to overclock it to 400 so that my other two sticks are performing better, or will i find just removing it and having 1gb of ddr400 running better.

DDR memory runs at the speed of the slowest module in the system.
Therefore if you take the DDR333 stick out, the other two will now run at DDR400 speeds.

If you're not running applications that need a gig and a half of memory then skip on it, or hang onto the memory just in case.

It usually all has to be the same speed to start with.
