Thanks for that Mark.

The board acually only has 3 DIMM slots. Each slot will take 
1GB maximum of RAM.

I do understand what you are saying about matching DIMM's 
in pairs on a 4 slot board.

Main reasons for choosing this board was:

a) price
b) 5 PCI slots - so plenty of room for adding other stuff.

Kind Regards,
