    First question, are you running a 32 or 64 bit operating system?.
    What operating system are you using?.
    Yes that memory will work in conjunction with your previous memory but if you are using a 32 bit OS it will only show 3GB, and will not speed up your system enough for you to notice.

    i am planning on installing x64 Vista. I just wanted to make sure that there would not be any conflict in those speeds.
