    Anyone have any idea if it's ok to put two sticks of ram with different clock speeds into the same computer? Does the slot order matter?

    If the architecture is the same, it will usually work but the speed will be reduced to the speed of the slowest stick. It's not a good idea.

    sounds good - i have an extra stick to put to use (1GB ram, here I come).

    THey're both DDR... i think one is DDR 333 and the other is DDR 400.

    There's not really a chance that anything could get fried, is there?

    No. But my computer has gone up on a roomfull of plastic smoke before, so I'm not to be trusted.

    DDR333 will work, but your DDR400 will also run at DDR333.
