None. Your motherboard requires PC-4200 or PC-5300 DDR2 modules and the maximum memory per slot is 1GB.

where u find out that my mobo only supports a max. of 1 GB per slot? And I thought PC-XXXX doesn't matter as long as the DDRX and the pin is compatible with the motherboard.

I checked a few memory sites and they all have the same info. Does your manual indicate that you can use DDR2-800 2GB modules for a total of 4GB?

But I thought memory ram can be backward compatible with the mob. I mean I can use DDR2 800 (PC-6400) too even though my mobo states PC-4200 and PC-5300 right?

Not necessarily. Your motherboard doesn't support DD2-800, therefore you can give it a try, but nobody will guarantee that the modules will work. That motherboard requires 1GB low-density modules, i.e., 16 chips (a chipset limitation). Less expensive modules made with 8 chips will be recognized as 512MB only. If I were you I'd order modules that are certified to work with that motherboard.
