No, your motherboard is rather old and it takes DIMM modules, not DDR as the panel may say. You should look for PC100 dimm modules. Usually you are limited to 128mb per module or maybe you can try 256mb modules.

For RAM info, go to and run the system scanner. For the MB you will need the mfg model number to research it on their website. Compatible processors are subject to the slot type that the MB accepts.
