775i65G does not work when two 1GB DDR400 are installed.
I have a 775i65G board with a Pentium D 2.80GHz as a processor. I have recently upgraded the memory modules from 256 MB to two new and identical 1GB DDR400 Kingston Memory module and it crashes and gives a BSOD 0x0000008E. The memory cards are working fine since it was tested with different slots and it does not crash. I have formatted the computer already and it still crashes. Sometimes the error is 0x00000050. If I try to connect the old memory, 256MB DDR400, with one of the 1GB DDR400 module, it works fine. Issue occurs when the two Kingston Modules are installed.

The board does support up to 2GB DDR400 RAM (for more info on the board try here).
You might also find MSI's support site helpful (here is link to your specific board that has up to date BIOS and drivers).
As for why your system only sees 512MB of RAM, I am not entirely sure, you could try running 'dxdiag' (just type dxdiag into the 'run' utility), which should give you a more accurate reading of how much RAM you have available. Otherwise, certainly try the BIOS update. If you are still seeing only 512MB afterwards, I would certainly be questioning the reliability the board (if the RAM has tested fine on other systems).
IT supports Maximum 2GB DDR400 RAM.
It mainly depends on the Processor speed.I think 1gb RAM is sufficient for Your Pentium 4 configuration. If you use more than 1Gb.there is no remarkable speed difference between them.So better choice is use 1GB RAM.
The chips to which you refer are incompatible with respect to the socket used for each as well as the fact that Core duo and Pentium 4 1.5 GHz chips are from separate generations, the latter having been obsolescent since 2003. Therefore, there is no single motherboard that supports both, and the Pentium 4, Socket 478 boards can be obtained from various aftermarket sources.
Here is an example of the kind of board you need for your Pentium 4.
