Default Upgrading RAM on 4 PCs question

Hello,

I have 4 Pcs that I need to upgrade their RAM to 2 GB each. Here are the specs for each motherboard of the 4 PCs

Manufacturer: Micro-Star International CO LTD
Model: G31TM-P21 (MS-7529)
Chipset: Intel P35/G33/G31

Manufacturer:
Model: Sis-661
Chipset: SiS 661FX

Manufacturer:
Modelo: Wolfdale1333-D667
Chipset: Intel i945G

Tarjeta Madre:
Manufacturer:
Modelo: SiS-661
Chipset: SiS 661FC

I am going to buy the following RAM cards:

RAM Memory DDR2 800 2GB 2048MB
RAM Memory DDR 400 1GB 1024MB(DDR3200)

I checked all the specs for each motherboard and I dint see any "BUTS" on the memory section but I would like to make sure. Do you see any compatibility issues getting these RAM cards for these 4 PCs?

Looks alright to me but check this again:
RAM Memory DDR2 800 2GB 2048MB

If i were you I would look into 667 ddr2 to be on the safe side.
Not unless your asrock will underclock it automatically or you do it yourself.

I am new at this. If for some reason it does not work what is the process of underclocking? What does it mean?

For this motherboard I found this

Manufacturer: Micro-Star International CO LTD
Modelo: G31TM-P21 (MS-7529)
Chipset: Intel P35/G33/G31

MSI Global ? Motherboard - G31TM-P21

This link it says it supports DDR2 Memory DDR2 667/800

So the DDR2 2 GB card I should be good right?

For the asrock I found this:

ASRock > Wolfdale1333-D667

- Dual Channel DDR2 memory technology
- 2 x DDR2 DIMM slots
- Supports DDR2 667/533 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 4GB*

I guess for this one i would need some explanation about what to do....

Did you already buy these RAM sticks?

If not, just buy DDR2 667 for the DDR2 boards. Is the SIS board S478 or S775?
