I have gotten this motherboard from a storage auction but the manual is lacking in information and my german is not what it should be.

Can anyone tell me what memory types work on this board? I checked the gigbyte site but it was not much help.

Chipset

1. Intel® 845 Chipset consists of Intel® Memory Controller Hub (MCH) and the Intel® I/O Controller Hub 2 (ICH2)
2. Creative CT5880 4-channel audio chip
3. Winbond W83627HF I/O chip
4. Realtek RTL8100L LAN chip

Memory

1. 2 x 168-pin DIMM slot
2. Supports up to 2GB of PC133 SDR-SDRAM
3. Supports 64 bits data interface, 3.3V DIMM DRAM and ECC DIMM

Does this mean pc2100 2700 or 3200? I know the fsb is at 400 but does this spec hold true? will pc3200 work?

Thanks for any information on this.

None of those will work, they are all DDR memory types, that motherboard uses conventional SDRAM like: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Manufactory=&PropertyCodeValue=521%3A7967&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=524%3A7863&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=0&PropertyCodeValue=0&description=&MinPrice=&MaxPrice=&SubCategory=147&Submit=Property

thanks you guys,

I also got the real low down on this mb from a company at ebay that stopped me from buying the wrong memory type. I got a deal on some 1gb sdram from them. Nice people :)
