I use Crucial or Kingston ram.

But for older hard to find ram, try 18004memory.

Always use matched sticks in pairs.

Just get two new idententical 2GB "DDR2 PC2-4200 533MHz 240-pin DIMM" for your "MSI (Micro-Star) Motherboard MS-7507". You shall get it in any decent memory online shop.
Thanks for suggestion i bought one 2gb ram as you mentioned and added with 1 gb ram and is working fine

Horse Manure. Unbalanced RAM works just fine. 3GB is a helluva lot better than 2GB. As is 12GB vs 8GB. You make do with what you can afford. Sheesh!

I had a dual channel capable motherboard with mixed 1 and 2GB RAM. I used what I had and it worked reliably, although the full potential of matched, dual channel RAM might not have been realized. In recycling hardware, I've found things generally work fine. If funds permit, sure, maximize the RAM available by the specs if this is important.
