    Default RAM clarification

    I'm running a K9N4 Ultra-F MSI motherboard.
    the below speccs are what i copied off their website:

    Main Memory Supports dual channel DDR2 400/533/667/800, using four 240-pin DDR2 DIMMs.
    Supports the memory size up to 4GB Supports 1.8v DDR2 SDRAM DIMM Due to the High Performance Memory design, motherboards or system configurations may or may not operate smoothly at the JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council) standard settings (BIOS Default on the motherboard) such as DDR2 voltage, memory speeds and memory timing. Please confirm and adjust your memory setting in the BIOS accordingly for better system stability.
    Example: Kingston HyperX DDR2-800 PC-6400 operates at 2.0V, 4-4-4-12.
    For more information about specification of high performance memory modules, please check with your Memory Manufactures for more details.

    So If I'm correct, then 2 DDr2 RAM sticks that are 4gb or below, run on the above Mhz and have a 240-pin DIMM slot will work? apparently I have a plug'n'play feature on my motherboard, so if i buy
    two ram sticks with the above speccs then plug them in, I should be right to go?

    You are still going to have to change your OS to a 64 bit if you plan on running more than 3GBs, you will not be able to take advantage of the extra memory with out changing to Vista 64bit
