Default Will this motherboard support PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM RAM?

As the title says, I am asking if this Mother board(Newegg.com - ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail) along with an Intel Core 2 duo, will Support PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM RAM? Ive looked around on Newegg.com, but it looks like it is all for Laptops. Any recommendations?

Thanks!

Well, my main confusion is the DIMM part. If I type in DDR DIMM, every single listing says "laptop Memory" after it... Its kind of confusing me

Nah. DIMM just means Dual Inline Memory Module or RAM.

Well then whats the difference between these two?

Newegg.com - Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory - Retail

and

Newegg.com - Crucial 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

The first one says "Laptop memory" and is a different shape... The second one says "Desktop Memory" and is longer and skinnier...

Whats the difference?
