  1. motherboard MSI 865PE Neo2 Series
    cpu P4 2.4GHZ (800FSB)
    Tnt2 Video card ( I will upgrade next month)
    I brought a single generic 256 DDRam PC3200 now in the shop, they repairing it, i need 1 days to take it back.

    Can I buy another brand of ram, perhaps kingston 256 DDRam PC3200. Can I generic into dimm 1 and kingston into dimm2 mix them together(etc)? So that i can make dual channel? will it actually work?
