How to check if the RAM stick is a Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization?

I have bought a couple of DIMMs which are not working as expected and since my motherboard states that it doesn't support Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization so I am trying to find ways to check if I have bought an incompatible RAM stick.

lshw on 64bit Ubuntu identifies my product as NT2GT64U8HD0BY-AD

Its a 2GB PC2 - 6400 CL6 240 Pin DIMM

How can I check if its a Double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization?

To determine if your ram is x16 or not, read this forurm post.

What is your motherboard type?

I have been to that link while googling. They have explained the terminology well but they don't say anything about recognizing the DIMM, just hints but not too sure. Or did I miss something? I have an Intel DG965GRY board. –  Ashfame Nov 27 '11 at 16:22
