Memory upgrade question in Gateway Laptop

  1. Hello All,

    I was wondering if you could help me out here. I recently purchased a Gateway MX6124 laptop and would like to upgrade the memory from 512mb(2x256) to 2Gb (2x1Gb). My question lies in what kind of memory i can use.

    Here are some of the details straight from Gateway:

    Memory Size 256 MB
    Memory Type JEDEC 200-pin DDR-SODIMM
    Package 200-pin SODIMM, 1.27-inch height
    Speed 533 MHz
    Supply Voltage 2.5 V
    Parity Support No parity bit supported

    I was wondering if it would be possible to upgrade my ram to ddr2-sodimm. REason being is because i found a cheaper stick of ddr2 1gb memory on newegg. Also, it also says that the memory is dual channel. If i order two of the same models of memory, would that be ok? Please help me, i'm quite confused.

    Oh, by the way, here is the link to the memory that i am currently looking at:

    ddr2? naw, you've got to stick with whatever your laptop supports. oem builds are generally picky about thier ram timings, so try and puirchase ram with identical timings. i advise running cpu-z to check your timings.
