How do I know if this MB

Will work with this memory?

Trying to find out how to make sure different memory is compatible with what. Is DDR and SDRAM the same? How can I tell the difference. I have 512 stick in my Dell now and I would like to use it with the next MB.

The MB specs say that it uses DDR400. So that memory (DDR400/PC3200) will work with the MB.

as weiser09 said, yes it will work.
on the mothorboard specs it says "RAM: 3x DIMM for DDR400/333/266 Max 3GB". so it can use 400 or 300 or 266. on your ram specs it is DDR400 so it is fine.

SD ram is not the same as DDR ram. In order to tell if the ram from your dell will be compatible with your new computer you will need to find out what speed your ram is in ur dell. SD ram will be either PC 66 or 100 or 133. If it is one of those three it will not work with your new computer.
