Besides I know you aren't using PC4000 which I believe is the lowest...possibly PC3500 actually that DDR2 comes in but I'm not 100% sure on that.
CPU-Z <-- will tell you all you need to know about your RAM, google that name for the program
I do believe Nforce4 is an AMD chipset, and AMD doesn't support DDR2 and won't for some time as it will need to rework the CPU's onboard memory controller which is DDR400
Only Intel's i915 and i925 support it I think......
And you may have PC4000, as it could be DDR, but it is not DDR2 memory unless you have a brand new(2 monthes or newer) Intel system and empty wallet
You told use you were comparing DDR2 and DDR before

Correct because mobo's only support up to DDR400, so you have to OC the system to be able to actaully utilise PC4000 RAM at PC4000 speed
