Default Memory upgrade, will this work?

Hey all, buying this board. - GIGABYTE GA-EP43-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I have 2 1gb ram chips from an HP a1630n. This is just a budget build, will this ram work on the above board or should I buy some new ram?

Appreciate the help!

The ram that you have in your HP is DDR2. The motherboard that you would like to purchase supports DDR2. Yes it will work.

Get this mobo instead its $20 but a lot better - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
Yes the ram will work but its a tad slow plus if thats your current pc the cpu is not compatible with a p43/p45 chipset only intel will be.
