I am replacing an ECS HT2000 motherboard that died, and in it are 2 sticks of 512 MB RAM that read

Samsung 512MB 1Rx8 PC2-5300U-555-12-ZZ

I'm on newegg, and I want to make sure that these will work with the new board, but I don't know if these are DDR2 standard or really what they are.  I can always just buy new RAM for the new board, but if these work, why not use them.
