The nVidia nForce 430 MCP does support that much memory. Crucial is pretty good about it but WOULD YOU BE UPSET if Windows reported 2.75GB RAM?

Your choice here.
I currently have 1x1GB DDR2 and I'm thinking about upgrading my RAM and making it dual channel, but I'm not sure about the max memory for my mobo (Asus M2N-MX SE).
According to the User Manual ( http://dlsvr01.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socketAM2/M2N-MX%20SE/e3168_m2n-mx_se.zip ) it supports 2x1Gb, i.e. 2Gb total.
The same specs are on Asus' site:
"Dual channel memory architecture
2 x 240-pin DIMM, support max. 2GB DDR2 800/667/533 ECC and non-ECC,un-buffered memory"
( http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=LqXTJVvWNyI6cj2d )
However, I've seen many reviews which state that it supports up to 4Gb DDR2 (2x2Gb), and The Crucial Memory Advisor? tool says the same.
( http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=M2N-MX%20SE )
Now I don't know who to believe...
The question is: can I upgrade to 2x2Gb (2 x KVR800D2S6/2G)?
or should I go for 2x1Gb instead?
In case you need it, here's the CPU-Z report:
Thanks in advance!
