Optiplex GX150 - High Density RAM ok?

    I wanted to upgrade the memory of my old P3-933MHz from 256MB (twin 128
    sticks) to 512MB.

    Its been a long time since I used a P3 since I also own a 4GHz, X800
    powered AMD machine but I can still remember issues with low density
    and high density DRAM back in those days.

    Browsing through EBay, it seems the high density DRAM is considerably
    cheaper than low-density DRAM and if my vague memory recalls, there are
    compatibility problems with the "newer" high density DRAM with some
    motherboards.

    Will the Optiplex GX150 motherboard be able to withstand TWO, 256MB
    PC133 sticks of high density DRAM?
