Depends On what motherboard you have but, it sounds like you motherboard wouldn't support DDR2 since they are go into to longer DIMM slots, have more pins and take a high voltage.

533 FSB sounds kinda slow to have a mobo support DDR2 so Im guessing no.

But just for the hell of it, what motherboard do you have?
