Not according to Asus:

Dual Channel memory architecture

DDR = 184-pin
DDR2 = 240-pin

DDR2 won't fit in the slots.

Go to http://www.crucial.com and you can have them scan your computer. It will tell you how many slots, what are in them and what the best RAM would be.

Remember if it is dual-channel, you would do well to get a matched pair. It will tell you that also. :thumbsup:


BTW, you have 4 slots and they do accept Dual-Channel memory just as tg1911 said.
