Hello,
I have 3gb 1333Mhz Ram, want to upgrade!
And I'm willing to buy 6gb 1600Mhz.
My question is: Could I use both 3gb and 6gb together?
Or I could jut use the 6gb kit?
My motherboard is Asus P6T.
My 3gb: 1x1gb and 1x2gb.
The 6g: 3x2gb.

thanks.

two different types of ram don't mix well. You can just get a whole new 6 gb kit.

something like this, which is like $175

or for cheaper, but a tad slower ram, this for $145 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145220

I didn't even see that when looking, that would be a great choice.
