Hello,
I have two computers and I'm going to upgrade their RAMs.

P4P800 has 512 Mb, DDR400 and I want to put in extra 512 Mb. This mobo has the Dual-Channel Mamory feature, Woudl it be OK just to add another 512 Mb DDR400 stick or their should be some other considerations?

P4VP-MX has 256 Mb, it has 533MHz FSB, but DDR400 memory stick (it said on the stick 400, DDR). I'm supposed to have 133MHz sticks with my FSB and my first question about this mobo is how bad that I have MSB 533MHz and that I use higher frequency memroy?

another one is, can I add another 512 Mb or it should be consistent and should be either two 256s or two 512s?

if I have DDR400 256, can I, say, add 256 Mb, but not DDR400, but someting like DDR333 or DDR266?

Thank you,
Yurich
