Default Ram question

If i have a gig of some slower ram. with the timings of 2.5 8-4-4 (geil)

And i put a gig of XMS at timings 2-3-3-6

Both the sticks will run at the speed of the slowest stick.

Yeah, and thats not always good to do, so its best to get the same speed sticks.

Some RAM would cause instabilities, etc, especially if the RAM wants to go faster but can't
