Honestly you will be far better off running two sticks of the same size and
speed than running one big one and one small one. Make certain that any ram
you buy runs at the same speed (MHz) as any RAM that you currently have and
intend to keep using, otherwise the faster RAM will burn itself out trying
to run at the slower speed (had this happen to a friend of mine who didn't
check this first).
