2GB should suffice. Based on your chipset alone, I would assume you have 4 RAM slots and your 666MHz RAM is overclocked DDR1? If you do indeed have 4 slots, you could add to your existing RAM with an additional 2 x 512MB as long as the RAM's timing and clocks are the same. Otherwise you could simply replace the existing RAM with 2 x 1GB. The former option of course being cheaper.

My guess is that its DDR2-667, he just forgot to add that last 1 and got 666.

Best to make certain though, download CPU-Z and tell us what it says.

I see that your using Vista, if you do alot of gaming with Vista 3GB would be the better option. 3GB in Vista is like using 2GB with XP.

666MHz RAM

Did you get your ram from the devil? :p

Your board should support DDR2-800 i think, double check to make sure.

No sense in buying slow memory when your board can run faster.

Sorry, I didn't see the "1GB DDR2" in your sig. I was going on what I found in articles on the web about the nforce 430 chipset.
