With this platform I would not suggest it, you would get best performance by replacing what you have now with 2 1.0 Gig modules. If you install 4 modules in this MB the memory frequency may need to run at DDR333 at 2T Command Rate and you may have to relax the settings as well because of loading on the memory controller. In addition, all four modules would need to be the exact same part# and revision as well.
