Right, there's more to it than that though.  They have to be 5v dimms 
to work ;)  But there is fast-page/non fast-page, edo/non-edo , 
buffered/unbuffered to take into account.

It all depends on whatever ram already existed in that machine, I would 
reccomend to try using only that new ram in the machine for a day or 
two and see what happens.  If you get no lockups you can probably bet 
that it's a ram mismatch.  Also the 7300's support interleaving for 
ram, so make sure that the pairs of chips are in proper slots, i.e. 
A1/A2, B1/B2 .. they are labelled on the motherboard beside the ram
