Just got some memory from a friend and I wondered if it was compatible with my motherboard.  Obviously they are different frequencies so I wouldn't use them both if they were both ok, but which one is better and can I use it for my motherboard?

Reneon CL 2.5
256mb DDR 333 Pc 2700U

and

Kingston Infineon KVR 2.5 V
AVMI08C0416

Let me know if you need more information.  What I gave is off the two cards.

Crucial and Kingston have memory configurators that tell you what RAM will work with your motherboard.  PC2700 DDR333 looks compatible http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.asp?Mfr%2BProductline=ASUS%2B+Motherboards&mfr=ASUS&tabid=AM&model=P4S800D&submit=Go, but only with a cpu that runs at 166FSB or less (in other words, most hyperthreading P4's are not compatible).

The Kingston Infineon doesn't have enough information, like PCxxxx rating.

Here's what I have
Intel Pentium 4 3.0E Prescott 800MHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 478 Processor - Retail  

I assume it won't work then huh?

Sign your company up to try the MB 660 headset now

Take control and stay focused in noisy open office environments with the MB 660. By reducing background noise, you can revitalize your office and improve concentration.

Nope - the RAM that I could identify is too slow for 800FSB.  I don't know about the other one.

Just for your edification, you will need PC3200 or higher for that cpu.
