Have you been into the Cell Menu in the bios yet and set the FSB/DRAM ratio to the correct value so the ram will run at the correct speed?

I used to have MSI 770T-C45 mobo but it didnt work, no chips could ever work with the ones I had so I bought the new board. And I tried to set it to 1:2:66 aka 1066
And I just got black screen of death, and It changed back.
Cant I just add the 667mhz and lower the speed in BIOS to 667? So all 4 sticks will go on the same speed?

Double check the specs for the ram (especially the voltage it requires), and if necessary set it manually.

Also I assume you mean adding that 2x1 GB to the existing 2x2 GB. If so with only running 32 bit Windows according to your specs I wouldn't bother as you will never use it. With running 32 bit you're not using the full 4 GB you have now.

I own a 64bit also wich I would install if I'll do this. I just need to know if this will work together

Best anyone can say is maybe. If you do out them together and they work all 4 sticks will run at the speed of the 2 slowest ones.

So if I put them in, and the system boots up to windows and no problem on the way, its working?
