Won't be any problem once so ever. Like mentioned above, make sure your mobo supports 1 Gb or RAM (most likely it does). You can even mix RAM of different frequencies (must be same format), however they will all be forced to run at the speed of the slowest module present.

Ex.: If you use one 512 Mb (PC3200) module, and add one 512 Mb (PC2700) module... Both chips will be running at 333 Mhz (PC2700).

Goodluck... And feel free to post any questions you may have. I'll do whatever I can to answer them as soon as possible.
