Go to www.crucial.com and use their online scanner. When the scan is complete, you will see what ram you need and how much.

You shouldn't even be running XP on a system with that little RAM. If you want it to run reasonably well, you should have at least 512MB...more would be better.

I just checked the model number & you have a server board? It supports up to 1GB PC133 per slot, for a max total of 4GB, but it MUST be ECC/Registered memory, meaning it won't be cheap.

Jam is correct. I just checked with some of my vendors and found that if the module is available the price is not cheap. ECC buffered memory is currently as high as $200 for 512MB and 1GB ones are $200 and up. This means bringing a PIII system to faster specs will be much more than a brand new system costs.
