I Need some advice if possible to upgrade the memory on a friends old computer, I have not seen the computer, but the info he's given me is very accurate he assures me. Not my strong point messing around inside the box, so help would be most appreiciated.

The Spec.

AMD64 Athlon 64 3200+


MSI-6741 1.0

Chipset VIA - K8T800 (VT8383) REV. 01

Running 1GB DDR Memory at the moment, & he wants to upgrade to 2GB.

I Found this info on MSI Site (Link Below) for his Motherboard:


I found this product at a local Computer Superstore...

PNY / 1GB PC3200 / DDR DIMM MEMORY / 1GB Memory Module DDR DIMM for Desktops / 400MHz Bus Clock Rate
/ 184 pin Configuration / Non-ECC

Would it be safe to put in two of these to upgrade the memory to 2GB without causing a problem???? :thumbsup:
