Default Compatibility??

I've decided against getting G.Skill memory, and I was wondering if anyone could help me with the compatibility of this system:

CPU: Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ Socket 939 512KB
Motherboard: DFI nForce4 Ultra-D
Hard Disk Drive: Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 10 NCQ 300GB 6L300SO SATA 16MB Cache
Graphics Card: nVidia GeForce 6800 GT 256Mb
PSU: Q-Tec 550W Dual Fan Gold PFC ATX
Screen: Viewsonic VX924 19" LCD TFT
DVD RW: NEC ND-3520A Black Dual Layer DVD+/-RW
Floppy Disk Drive: Sony 3.5" FDD
Case: Extreme Gaming Spider Case
Mouse: Logitek MX510
Keyboard: Saitek Eclipse

With this memory:

OCZ 2GB (1GB x 2) DDR2 PC2-4200 Dual Channel

But as said before, I was wondering would they be compatible with my system? And especially my motherboard?

Thanks!

Since your mboard uses DDR memory, i dont think there would be any advantage to using DDR2 memory, even if it did work. Plus I believe DDR2 is more expensive and I have heard there are some issues with it. Just buy some DDR memory.

Currently, DDR2 is only compatible with Intel-based systems.
