I have these P4GE-MX ASUS Motherboard and placed a 512MB PC400 DDR Memory, and in another slot, a 128MB PC333 DDR memory,Is it ok?? ACtually I am running my PC in good condition but i dont know if it will affect the performance or badly hurt my PC in future times, Is it for to do that?? tnx

The Motherboard's specifications mention that it uses DDR Ram, while the FSB runs at 400MHz. That means that any kind of DDR memory will work up to the maximum of 2 GB (it has 2 slots, so it's up to the max of 2x1GB DDR sticks).
There's no issue with the speed, actually the faster you can get the better results you will have. Try looking for 1GB DDR 400MHz (preferably two of them, if you want to max out the capacity and since it's kind of cheap to do so).
The one you tried and didn't work, might be due to a faulty RAM module.
More detail in your question would be useful to get the answer you are looking for.
If you are asking if that is what you need then the answer is yes. Your motherboard has two DDR slots which can hold 1GB DDR memory each, with 2GB being the maximum capable.
If you are asking where to buy some new ram sticks. Most stores no longer carry, or have a limited supply of DDR memory. Easiest and cheapest place to buy memory would be online. e.g. Tigerdirect, Newegg, etc.
Hopes this helps a little. If not, please give a little more detail as to what you are asking.
You do not say what memory you are trying to install.
The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.
DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.
Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.
Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.
Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.
PC2700 (DDR333) memory and PC3200 (DDR400) are backward-compatible with PC2100.
Memory is designed to be backward-compatible, so generally speaking, you can safely add faster memory to a computer that was designed to run slower memory. However, your system will operate at the speed of the slowest module or system component (the "lowest common denominator" effect).
One thing to keep in mind is that the memory does need to be the same type-for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2.
Let me know if you have any questions.
