    Is this just another case of no Motherboard Manual ?
    If so download a pdf version.It has compatible ram list.
    But adding the same type as you have is OK if you know it's brand.
    BTW,2 GB is plenty.
    Your Motherboard might be limited to 2 GB.

    The only 1 you should be concerned with is
    ddr2 4200 @533mghtz .It's good you know this,so
    I recommend Kingston packaged ,Lifetime Warranty.
