Default Weird RAM Problems with my Dual G5??!!

Hello Hello
Well I recently bought a dual G5 and I just purchased the base model Dual
2GHZ that came with 512mb (2x256mb) of ram. Anyhow I recently purchased some Corsair Valu Select ram from Newegg which came in a 2x 512mb package.
So I installed them and my G5 says that I only have 1GB of Ram instead
of the 1.5 GB that I should have. I looked in the system profiler and it
says this in the memory section
DIMM0 - 256 MB DDR SDRAM
DIMM1 - 256 MB DDR SDRAM
DIMM2 - 256 MB DDR SDRAM
DIMM3 - 256 MB DDR SDRAM

I installed the 2 512mb sticks on DIMM 0 and DIMM 1.
But for some reason they are registering only 256mb.
Now I checked the box and it says they are 512mb each, i check
the label on the sticks and they say 512mb each and I also check
to make sure that it had the 8 32mb chips on each side of each stick
to maked 512mb on each stick.

Now, i also tried to have JUST the 2 Corsair 512mb sticks in the system without
the factory 256mb sticks and it did not even want to boot up.
Then I tried just the 2 Corsair 512mb sticks with one of the 256mb factory
sticks and it booted up but said I only had 512mb installed.
Its almost like if I dont have at least one of the 256mb factory sticks in there
it does not even want to boot up.

Here is the ram I got on newegg

There is even reviews from people who have used it in their G5s and it worked.
Maybe im doing something wrong, someone please give me some advice.
Thanks
