Rubbing your body with anti-static bags would mean the static on you would be reflected back on you. In short, its about the least effective method I can think of to ...
Here's a wiki on memory interleaving, but to directly answer your question; yes, mixing memory types/speeds/etc will result in slower memory timing speeds (lowest common denominator) and certain functions being disabled if memory sizes are mixed. The reason for this is that memory interleaving is a sort of 'computer math trick' that allows the RAM to have ...
PC2-6400 is the spec, just get RAM at that speed, and you'll be fine, If you're really paranoid replace them all at the same time, that way you know the timings and everything match, you shouldn't have to, but I've seen modules both rated for the same speed not play well because the timings were off.
When looking for SSD drives and how many etc. ... ask yourself how many MB/sec will you be writing? If Photoshop will be writing say 200MB to its scratch file, and the OS is writing the same amount then you have 400MB and are about to hit the SATA III limit. In that instance two drives would be better. P.S. A new PC that can support 32GB of RAM are pretty ...
