Yea that will work.

Try and get this memory though.

It's still 1GB just divided into 2 sticks, so you'll get Dual Channel mode, and these run at 400MHz PC3200 instead of 333MHz PC2700.

Just don't use your old RAM with the 400MHz RAM I mentioned cause it'll slow the new RAM down to PC2700 333MHz.

You can save yourself a few dollars and get these: pqi POWER Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
pqi is a good memory manufacturer and I've used their products in the past with no problems.

PC3200 is backwards compatible and will run at PC2700 speeds quite happily.

It's cheaper too.

Here's another thing I was looking at. If you look at the specs of the motherboard it says this:
Quote:
Front Side Bus (FSB) - 400 / 333 / 266 MHz
PC3200 memory runs on a 400MHz FSB. So I'm thinking that if you use that memory, you can safely run it at it's rated speed.

Quite right.

The motherboard does support 400MHz RAM.

If I stuck to manufactures specs I would only be running PC3200 RAM.

As it turns out I run PC4000 RAM to give me the room to OC my set up.
