I want to put two of these on an ASUS A7A266 motherboard. Will they work? Does the A7A266 use DDR or DDR2? What's the maximum RAM allowed?

I got various answers so here it goes.
The board is meant for PC2100, reports say PC3200 will work, but
at the slower speed. Also reported was anything over 1GB would not work, but
the specs say 2GB is possible at PC2100.
Here's a link to the manual for that board:

Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux

and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.

Worth reading, IMO: http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/a7a266/default.asp

Board can take 3GB of PC133 or 2GB of PC2100 (or above). PC 133 is SDRAM, while PC2100 is DDR (not DDR2).

PC3200 ought to work, but if PC2100 is cheaper...I see no reason to buy premium DDR for a board that also accomodates SDRAM and where PC2100 is the manual recommendation.

It's PC2100.
