    What exactly are you trying to do? Personally I'd just get whatever else that you can find. No real reason to have 4 matching sticks. If you are planning to use them all in the same system, the motherboard/BIOS will relax the timings and slow the memory anyway. This is standard to support 4 sticks. Having four matching sticks isn't that big of a deal. If you absolutely have to have the same RAM, take a look at eBay.

    You are going to have to buy it used since it is very out of date. In addition you are going to pay a pretty high premium for that memory since 184pin memory has not been made in quite a while.

    Before investing in the extra ram, you might want to check if your board will run 4 ram chips without problems. Many old mb has "issues" with all four slots populated. [I have an old nforce board here that has the issue. Long since retired however it is still sitting in the parts closet]

    If it only has three slots, then having another 2 sticks won't be of much help. And going from 2GB to 3GB with XP won't make much difference.

    As for the motherboard, without knowing the brand/model, I can't recommend anything or comment. Assuming it's a home built PC, the motherboard is likely mATX or ATX. If it's an OEM PC (ie: Dell, HP, etc.), your best bet is to simply start from scratch.
