You can install 184 pin DIMM, up to 3 GB of un-buffered ECC and non-ECC PC3200/PC2700 / PC2100 DDR SDRAM memory. Just look at any RAM you may be considering for purchase and make sure it fits into these specifications. The best course of action is to match all of the ram, don't mix brands and speeds. If you mix speeds, the result is all ram runs at the lower speed, if they will work together at all. If you mix brands, there is always a chance they won't play nicely together. Best course of action, decide what brand and speed you want (as long as it meets the criteria for your motherboard) and get all the same brand/speed.
