It has been a very long time since I have upgraded RAM and don't know all of the new names. I keep seeing ddr, sdram, dimm, simm, pc100, pc133, pc3200...etc etc etc.

The disk that came with my motherboard says that I have a ASUS NVIDIA nFORCE2 Series Motherboard Rev 44.07.

Could someone please tell me what type of RAM is compatible so I don't get the wrong kind.

Thanks a bunch!

Well the report sort of answered my question. It says I have 3 DDR DIMM slots.

Motherboard:
CPU Type AMD Athlon XP, 1100 MHz (11 x 100)
Motherboard Name Asus A7N8X-X (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DDR DIMM, Audio, LAN)
Motherboard Chipset nVIDIA nForce2 400
System Memory 512 MB (PC2700 DDR SDRAM)
BIOS Type Award (04/28/03)
Communication Port Communications Port (COM1)
Communication Port Communications Port (COM2)
Communication Port ECP Printer Port (LPT1)

It says that I have 1 512mb PC2700 DDR SDRAM installed right now. What does teh PC2700 mean?

If you enter ASUS for manufacturer, motherboard for product line, then the model number you will get the options
