Hi!

I want to know something.

I have a GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 UltraX-BH5 CAS2 (GLX1GB3200DC) kit on my Asus A8N-SLI Premium, I want to add another GB to my system, but i can´t find the same model or memory in any store. The new model GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 Ultra-X nForce4 Special Edition CAS2 (GLXNF1GB3200DC) have almost the same specs (only i little diference is voltage). My question is, can I buy the new kit and use it with the one i have or i need to find the exact model?

Nope, you don't have to match models. The part(s) that matter are:

1. All of the ram sticks must be the same size (e.g. all 1GB sticks, or all 512MB.... etc.)
2. They the same rated speed. (e.g. All DDR400 sticks, or all DDR333.... etc.)
