Check the QVL for your motherboard.

Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

You need to post you 'MOBO' to know for certain, and to be on the safe side also post your exact CPU {BIOS check}.

Q - MOBO = ? ; IF this is an OEM e.g. Dell, HP, etc then post the EXACT MODEL
Q - CPU = ?
Q - BIOS version = ?

If you don't know then use CPU-z to identify both components (main page CPU and Mainboard for MOBO & BIOS) ; CPU-z -http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

Yep, here's the info below. You can get either DDR2-667 2x4GB @ 1.80v or DDR2-800 2x4GB. Make sure you have BIOS version 2.5 or later. If available in the BIOS set Memory (Hole) Remapping -> Enabled for >4GB support (64-bit).
