Odds are it won't work.. The old system uses 164 pin SDRAM while your new system will probably use 184 pin DDR ram.. Won't even fit..

Howdy:

As per the manufacturers website..

mPGA478 Socket Intel® Celeron & Pentium® 4
i845GV Chipset
400/533/MHz FSB
2 DIMM Slots (DDRAM)
184 pin, 2.5V, 64 bit, DDR 200,266,333
Max memory 2GB
No ECC Support (unbuffered)


As I said eearlier, your old ram won't work..
