Default General Question on Memory Timings

I think this is a simple question..

I'm running 2 512MB sticks of ram and will be upgrading to 2 1gb sticks. I did set the timings manually for the ram in the machine, will the BIOS detect the new ram when I boot the 1st time, or do I need to do something BEFORE I replace the old memory?

I'm guessing the BIOS should autodetect the new ram it and set up some generic parameters Just want to be safe and not damage the new ram Any help is appreciated.

If you manually set the timings in the bios, I would assume they will try to apply to any ram you add.
