Having an Integrated Graphics Processor in this case will not matter. You just won't be getting the full potential from your DDR400, that's all.

As per your advice MircoBell, i'm going in for a Dual Channel DDR400.

But what model should i go in for ?
Does Twinmos Dual Channel DDR3200 kit work on my motherboard ?
Or should i go in only for a TwinX. I'm looking for a budjet dual channel 2x256 solution.

All previous and future replies are appreciated

well tommy looks like dave beat me to your answer. if you are going for budget i there is no need to get more memory other than the 256MB stick you already have. the dual channel doesn't speed up you IGP that much since i think it is a gforce4 440MX video accelerator, those are not know to be that speedy.

those Dual kits don't save you any/little money when i checked prices. IMO you would be wasting money on more memory, you will not notice much of a difference in speed in games with your IGP.

i found something disturbing about dual channel DDR400 (pc3200) with your board. someone is saying:
"Also, as has been stressed before, do not purchase DDR PC3200 RAM with this board if you intend to use the onboard video. "

you should read the rest here and decide for yourself:
