Your older RAM will be slower than faster RAM - but not by that much. It's all down to whether you feel the need for a tad more speed, or more money left in your pocket.

BTW - how much RAM do you have now - and what kind of things do you do on the system - and what kind of graphics do you have???

To run what sort of programs? For games I would have thought better graphics - but I'm no expert on games requirements.
