I bought a 2GB DDR2 PC800 800MHz RAM to be added on to my motherboard along with the already inserted 1GB DDR2 RAM 800 MHz. Will it support the system?

It shouldnt have any problems reading two sticks of different sizes.

Tho if your running dual channel with those two sticks, you will probably only have 2Gig available anyways.

Edit: when thinking about it, you should have all 3 gig available in Dual channel configuration, the motherboard should map the 1 gig stick, and 1Gig on the new stick for Dual channel operation, the remaining 1 Gig will be mapped for single channel operation. Or something like that, cant entirely remember it.

so your suggesting i should go with inserting both 1GB 800MHz and 2GB 800MHz RAM? Isn't?

yeah go for it, either it detects both stick with a total of 3 Gigs, or it detects a single stick and then you just keep the 2Gig stick in it

You cant break it, just remember to discharge first ;)
