Question server ram for desktop

Hi all,

i just bought new 256mb of ddr266 registered ecc server ram.


I was wondering whether or not it would be compatible with a normal desktop pc. My motherboard is a gigabyte 8vm533m-rz. i am only asking this question as i have not received the ram in the mail yet.

Any help would be greatley appreciated!!!

You'll likely need a server motherboard.

Why only 256MB?

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

All it says in the manual is

2 184 pin ddr dimm sockets, supports up to 2gb dram
supports ddr266/ddr200 dimm
supports only 2.5v ddr sdram

Look up hymd132g725b4m on google and go to the first link. It doesnt say anything about being server ram.

And when i install the ram, if its incompatible will the pc boot up? (i dont have any other ram at the moment)
