Default Ddr2 Ram ?

I just bought 2gigs of Corsair Dimms @ 800mhz. I have 2gigs of PNY @ 667mhz, and I was wondering if it's okay to put these together for now, until I get 2 more gigs of the Corsair Dimms. Will this decrease or increase the performance by having these 2 different speeds of DDR2.

it should work fine.
Though the corsair will also be running at 667mhz since all the ram sticks need to have the same speed.

It will work, but the DDRII-800 will go down to DDRII-667.

is it a big difference from 667mhz and 800mhz for gaming?

Should I just keep the 2gigs at 800mhz or put all 4gigs in at 667mhz?

Best thing to do is try them in and out, and run benchmarks to see whats better.

put the two fast gigs in, and forget about 4 gigs unless you *actually* need 4 gigs, if you do need 4 gigs, then make sure they are all the same speed.
