In theory it would be possible to put some faster memory in it which you could then use if you change board and processor later. But not all motherboards will like this.
Crucial recommends PC2100 so go with that.

I'm also wondering when Windows Vista comes out would my system with 1512MB Of RAM and AMD Athlon Xp 2000+ 1.67GHZ be good? I've read that it will require 512MB at least but would recommend 1GB! I'd rather keep Xp for awhile but Although I have an Vista/LongHorn Visual with a LongHorn Screen logo Theme I'm liking it.
My computer is good for it's time but I'm thinkin about upgrading in about 2 years I guess.

When Vista comes out next year, then consider your options then, and wait for user reviews to see how it performs on certain system specs. XP runs okay on a Duron 800.
I think you would benefit from waiting for 64-bit prices to come down over the next year or so. I believe your money would be better spent on a new board, processor and memory in 12-18mths time rather than buying 1Gb now of slower stuff which may not give you performance increases you want and you may not be able to transfer it later as a stopgap.
But at the end of the day, the decision is yours.
