Ok, I have an older custom built computer. Motherboard is a gigabyte ga-8vm800m-775. It currently has 1 stick of ddr 64x16 pc400 1g aum 2809 ram. I know the board will only support 2gb, however i'm not sure which ram is compatible with my board. I have searched and cannot find any other ram with this exact configuration. Can someone please help. Can I add another stick to this or will I have to buy 2 new 1gb sticks?

The thing is I can't find any 64x16 ram. Does that matter? I know ddr400 and pc3200 are the same, but does the 64x16 have to be the same also?
