Ok guys! I have made my final choice! How does this package deal look:

The price is right and it's what I'm looking for. If i buy these and add them to my existing 2 x 256mb sticks, I will have 1gb of Ram. Hell Yes (believe me this is great! I've never had that good RAM b4!)

So, Whaddya think?

Should work, unless you have picky RAM. Some RAM love to be all the same, meaning same manufacturer and size.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

I'd assume that should be fine.
They should be compatable since they are running at the same speed, though if the latencies of the chips are different (don't really matter if you don't know what this is) then the chips, depending on how good they are being will either choose not to accept the difference, or go along with it.

I don't tihnk you should have a problem though, and so I'd go for it and see.

Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch
