Go to and use their online memory check to determine what type and how much RAM your motherboard can handle.

How much RAM is currently installed and what is the reason for the upgrade? See the link below for specs.

✔ Best Answer
There is no "ddr2-5300". If you have DDR2-533, it's PC2-4200. If you meant PC2-5300, then you have DDR2-667. Either one will work but both are the "wrong" RAM. The A64 & A64 X2 are optimized for DDR2-800 aka PC2-6400.

Before upgrading the CPU, do you have 4GB RAM & a PCIe video card? If not, those may be better places to invest your upgrade money.
