the gigabyte 8IR2003 m/b has the following in the manual. I need to know how much ram it will support with

1. 128MB x 2 and 256MB x 1
2. 256 MB x 2



The motherboard has 3 dual inline memory module (DIMM) sockets, but it can only support a maximum
of 4 banks of DDR memory. DDR slot 1 uses 2 banks, DDR slot 2 & 3 share the remaining 2 banks.
Please refer to the following tables for possible memory configurations supported. The BIOS will
automatically detects memory type and size. To install the memory module, just push it vertically into the DIMM socket.The DIMM module can only fit in one direction due to the notch. Memory size can vary between sockets.
