I have an ASRock K8NF6G-VSTA mother board. In the specifications it says "Supported RAM Technology - DDR SDRAM" , "Memory - Supports DDR400 / 333 / 266 non-ECC. un-buffered memory", "Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB". It has two memory card slots.

Can I use (2) "Kingston KTH-DL385 2GB PC-3200 DDR-400MHz 184-Pin cards" to make the RAM 4GB?

I think I just answered my own question. The Add I was looking at says they are for server only. Correct me if I am wrong in assuming 2 slots 2gb only or do they make 2gb cards that are compatible?

The intent was to upgrade from 2gb to 4gb.

Thanks,

Fred

The max RAM you can install cannot exceed 2GB. Which means if you had two 2GB sticks you would only be able to use one of them.
I believe I found the same manual here.

I stumbled across a website that scans your system for RAM that fits your system.
You don't have to buy the RAM from their website but you can write down the types. Check it out here ---> [Crucial System Scanner]
