OK, here goes:
I currently own this computer:
Powerspec 8706. I can't get a direct link for some reason, so if you go to the site here: http://www.powerspec.com/ and type 8706 for system specs, you can see what I have.
Anyway, I saw a sweet deal for memory at the local computer store:
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=156582
After rebates, only $40! (That's good, right?)
So anyways, I was just wondering... Could the current memory in my computer:
http://www.powerspec.com/systems/archives/system_components.phtml?component=521&selection=8706
run in the same computer at the same time giving me a total memory of 768? I really want this to work, but will it?
Thanks a lot in advance

The answer is "possibly"

The new memory is faster, but it would operate at the lower speed of the existing memory and motherboard - unfortunately there is no simple way to determing if they are compatable without trying them.

Sometimes it's fine, sometimes it's trouble.

It could be just fine. As Kiwi said, sometimes different brands do not work well together. The only way to know for sure is to try. Most ddr types are backward compatible with the slower speeds.

Good luck

PS. Trouble would only be it would not work together.
