I only see one problem in that set up that other people might have skipped over. For A64 systems, NEVER EVER GET 4 X 512MB OF RAM. It is just way tooooo taxing on the memory controller. Get 2x1GB instead. It could be had for under 200USD. If you can get G.Skills in Australia that is. The DDR500 HZ ones are the ones to get.

2x512 is okay, but if you really wanted 2GB of RAM, get 2x1GB.
