RAM compatibility

I would like to increase the RAM on my daughter's Gladiator computer (which we bought approx. 5 years ago following excellent review in PC Advisor).
Crucial scan result:
Maximum Memory Capacity: 3072MB
Currently Installed Memory: 512MB
Available Memory Slots: 2
Total Memory Slots: 3
Dual Channel Support: Yes
CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
CPU Family: AMD Athlon(tm) Model 10, Stepping 0
CPU Speed: 1094 MHz
Crucial states the following RAM would be suitable for the ASUS A7N8X-X:
Module Size: 512MB
Package: 184-pin DIMM
Feature: DDR PC3200
Specs: DDR PC3200 • CL=3 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR400 • 2.6V • 64Meg x 64 •
I happen to have a spare pair of RAM from my son's computer:
Is there any way of finding out if this memory is compatible with the Gladiator?

Yes it looks compatible to me - try it, you cant lose, if the PC does not start you know its not compatible!

I take it that in doing so that I will not harm anything if they are not compatible - eg harming motherboard?

No you won't, it will either work or won't work!
