The "motherboard specs" are actually screenshots of the CPU-Z application. They provide no information about the motherboard. Try the Mainboard tab. –  Ярослав Рахматуллин Mar 16 '13 at 5:23

Both chips are DDR3 so the answer is yes. The one you wish to add is slower than the one currently installed. This will make both chips run at the speed of the slowest, which is less than optimal. The only thing left to check is whether the motherboard supports chips of 4GB capacity. Consult the manual of the motherboard for that.

Thanks for the reply. i uploaded the mainboard tab little while ago. Manual says max is 4gb. So will those work with no harm and with good performence? –  Waruna40 Mar 16 '13 at 5:31
