Well, after doing as much research as I can, I find out the my motherboard (VIA P4X266A or Intel 845G) supports both SD and DDR ram. So i used a program (HardInfo) to find out what type of RAM is currently installed. Is this program legit? So then I asked around, one guy said any RAM will work on my Motherboard, another said two different types couldnt work together, and the last guy said he wasn't sure, I'd have to read the manual. Since I have no such manual or couldn't find anything about it on google, I decided to ask you guys: Can I run SD ram and DDR ram at the same time?

Thats your motherboard... Isn't DDR RAM better than SDRAM? Your motherboard could take either. :tazz:

That was rude, and uncalled for. Our Staff members gave you good FREE advice, and you thank them by implying they are not smart. Behavior like that is not tolerated here. I am giving you a 24 hour suspension. Hopefully when you return, you will behave in a more civilized and friendly manner.
