Bought a 512 module from Kingston for the user-accessile slot in my M6805 last summer and it has given no problems. Looks like they have a 1 gig version available, although it doesn't show up if you search by emachines model, so no telling whether the larger size would work too.

What is the brand name? I tried Kingston 1G 2700 DDR but my machine (M6805) does not boot, I just hear 3 beeps and thats it.
This may be a dumb question, but if I want to upgrade the RAM in my M6809 (and thanks for the guidance on chips that will work), and I DON'T want to mess with the less-than-accessible 256MB module, won't it seem kind of strange to add either 512MB or 1GB? What I mean is, you rarely hear of people saying that they have 764MB, or 1.25 GB of memory. I remember in the old days when memory modules had to be in pairs, and they had to be matched. Does this no longer apply?
Bottom line: is there any problem with adding either 512 or 1GB to the existing 256?
