The k7s5a uses 2 different types of ram; they aren't interchangable. The other 2 slots take pc133, which is a different pin count and voltage. Use your old ram, and return or sell the new stuff on craigslist. And I doubt the motherboard can use 1 gb sticks; 512 is probably the limit, but you can do a search to find some old reviews with the board specs. Sorry I can't post links.
