I take it this is your mobo click here it will take up to DDR 400 RAM but in the following combinations only:

DDR 266 Max. 3GB
DDR 333 Max. 2GB
DDR 400 Max. 1GB

You will need to see what you currently fitted, does the initial POST screen tell you what speed it is? Maybe it will be displayed in the BIOS setup screen.

Look under the spd tab click here. Make sure you use the drop down box on the slot's to check all memory moduels.

The module size and max bandwidth recordings are the one's you need.

You currently have PC2700-166MHz RAM fitted which is DDR 333, remember it is Double Data Rate so the 166MHz is multiplied by 2 giving you the DDR 333 figure.

Apologies if you already knew this.

I didn't know that.
now I know what to get.
Thanks everyone.

No problem just remember that the maximum for this board is DDR 333 Max. 2GB.
