I agreed to upgrade the RAM for one of my collegues home computers.She has a 3-4 yo system with an Intel Celeron 330,Socket 478 MPGA with an Intel main board model D845GVSR with an Intel I845G chipset.(details from Cpuz) She has a Samsung 256 MB PC 3200 (200 Mhz) single stick in that machine and I suggested her to add another 512 Mb PC 3200 (400 Mhz) to the existing memory, to the second slot. Before buying, I just needed to make sure that there wont be any compatibility issues as most of the time, it cannot be returned. Does adding a Corsair or Kingston Value RAM 512 MB PC 3200 stick to the current configuration would be acceptable or will it cause any compatibilty issues with the current samsung stick?? is there anything in particular I need to know while installing the memory..like which one goes to which slot?? (there are 2 slots). Do I need to buy Samsung itself ??? Any suggestions would be really appreciated and thanks for your time in advance.
George.

Both Corsair and Kingston has memory configurators on theis websites. You can enter the motherboard and the will tell you exactly which memory modules are compatible.
