  1. If possible, it is best to try to get the ram in Dual Channel configuration. You'll have to check your MB manual, but in most cases to do this, you'd need:

    Channel 1: 2GB Stick
    Channel 2: 2x1GB Sticks

    or

    Channel 1: 2GB Stick
    Channel 2: 2GB Stick

    or

    Channel 1: 2x1GB Sticks
    Channel 2: 2x1GB Sticks

    or

    Channel 1: 1GB Stick
    Channel 2: 1GB Stick
  2. Also, I couldn't find that board model #. Could you double check it?
