How can I upgrade RAM

I?ve got a Proliant 1600 PII 400 with 128 MB RAM (two 64 dimm ). I need to upgrade, at less, to 512MB. What would it be the best combination? Can I install a 128 MB dimm (313615-B21) and a 256MB dimm(313616-B21) with the two 64MB? Or is it better if I purchase two 256MB dimm? In this case can I keep the two 64MB with the two 256MB?Should I think in anything else (e.g. BIOS upgrade, etc.)?

Re: How can I upgrade RAM

In all the combinations that you have mentioned all are supported. There is no best configuration as all will work. You are aloowed up to 1GB of RAM for this server. There is never a problem with updating the bios. Just remember if you upgrade one, you more than likely will have to upgrade all. F10 partition, firmware on the smart array controller and drivers.
