Bad idea. AMD64's (Well, all the current ones, anyway) work best if they
can use dual channel - which means that you need *two identical* DIMMs.

You could throw in another 1GB DIMM, or you could go for 2x512.

.. doesn't even *fit* on this board. Which is an outdated board, by the way.

WARNING: eclipse-3.0.1nb1 is not available for NetBSD-4.99.1-x86_64

AFAIK, there's not even a proper 64-bits JRE for Linux, let alone NetBSD.

No matter what hardware you're going to use, the answer will most likely
be "No."
