if a motherboard has slots for both these types of memory can it run both at the same time?

not always. some boards let you use all the slots at the same time but the fsb is tuned down to your SLOWEST memory module.

Have u ever mixed Sdram with DDR ram? it looks like your confused. fsb is turned down on the same type of ram. for example if u have pc100 sdram and pc133 sdram installed on the same system the fsb is at the lower pc100 speed, using the same idea using pc2100 ddr ram and pc2700 ram the fsb runs at the lower speed of pc2100.

Bottom line if u install sdram and ddr ram on the same system, u got some problems. and if for some stupid reason it actually does work ur going to have some major stablity problems :(

Might be cheaper in the UK, but here in the US DDR is actually cheaper than sdram, and a whole lot faster, no comparsion really. :D

I didn't even know they made a slot version, are they the same price or what? if the tray version is cheaper I would go with that.

there is really no difference performance wise between the two, well nothing u are going to notice anyway. unbranded is fine, go with it.

If sdram was a lot cheaper than ddr, I might actually consider it, but it would have to be a hell of a lot cheaper. I didn't realize it was so expensive in the UK, shoot u blokes just buy it here and have it shipped. :D

ASUS made a board that had 2 slots for PC-133 and 3 slots for PC2100 DDR, but you could only switch between the two, but then again why would you want to?
