I just recently learned that mixing the 512mb and the 1gb is a bad idea. So should i just take out the 2 512 sticks? I havnt really noticed a performance change since i upgraded.
there may be other factors that were not memory related, like your processor, if the system is pretty old the cpu might be what's holding the system back instead of RAM...
and who did you hear from that mixing different sizes of RAM was bad...? as long as they are both matching sets it wouldn't make a difference, they would still run in dual channel...
