Question about Intel Motherboard
You need the model number to tell for sure, but...
Look for numbers at the very end of the memory sockets for numbers WIHTOUT a letter in front, 184 is DDR1, 240 is ddr2. About 1/2 the boards do not have these numbers.
You can also try the business card trick using a regular US size business card, or make a piece of paper exactly 2 inches (51mm) wide.
With good lighting, look into the memory sockets. You'll see a 'nub' close to the middle of the socket. UNPLUG the computer, don't just turn it off. Turn the business card so the shorter edge goes into the shorter side of the memory slot, with one end all the way against the end, like it was a piece of memory.
Count how many pins are left between the edge of the card and the nub.
4 pins left means DDR, 9 pins left means DDR2.
DDR-400 will work in almost any ddr board, and ddr2-800 (aka PC-6400) will work in almost any ddr2 board.
Strangely enough, those also tend to be the cheapest speeds as well as the highest standard speeds.
