I don’t understand that if a mobo allows only 2 sticks of RAM and if each stick is of 512MB then how can total memory add up to 2 GB ? I have a mobo which specifies as follows:
Supports DDR 266/333
The largest total memory is up to 2GB

because you can get a memory stick more than 512mb

Thanks. Excuse me my ignorance, what is the maximum in DDR SDRAM memory sticks?

Memory modules for general use range in sizes up to 512MB. Specialist machines have special memory usually exceeding 1GB. Supercomputers have enormous amounts of very expensive memory.

Here's some information on memory from a very good place to buy it:

Thanks!! Topcat, I put this question to you. If a mobo says it allows max RAM of 2GB and at the same time offers only 2 slots for 2 RAM sticks then the max RAM can only be 1GB, why then does the mobo mfr mislead the customer??
