Crucial is a well known and trusted memory Manufacturer. They have been kind enough to make a tool that will scan your motherboard and let you know what kind of RAM you currently have, what you can upgrade to, and even offer you to purchase Crucial memory straight through their site. It has been very useful in the past for me.

That will teach me for relying on the Kingston configurator!!!!

2 x 1GB does seem to be the maximum and I stand corrected :)

It can support up to total no. of 2GB memory size of DDR SDRAM and it must be:
- either 333Mhz or 400Mhz installed in pair (else the performance will be reduce).
- pairs of matched memory size (else the performance will be reduce).
- non-ECC (system cannot boot to windows if user plugged an ECC RAM)
