Memory can ddr2 memory be installed on a motherboard that specs say "DDR 333/400 MHz dual channel"? Motherboard is a Foxconn C51GU01. If it can be done will it be an improvement over the DDR 400MHz memory I have now? OS is XP sp3.

Hello.
Of course it would be a great improvement, but unfortunatelly you can't install DDR2 in DDR slots, they are different and even if you could make it fit they have a big difference in architecture.
i'm sorry, it wont work.

Regards

Memory configurations

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs

using the recommended configurations.

• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB

(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB

synchronization table on the next page.

• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.

• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.
