    DDR just doesn't fit into plain SDRAM slots and you can damage your computer if you try to force it.

    Unless you have one of those motherboards that have both kinds of memory slots (looking at your CPU you probably don't) then there is nothing to do. Sell that DDR or upgrade your motherboard.

    DDR PC2100 maybe? Depending on the brand it could be ~$20 and up. You should also test it first - no need to sell people bad stuff.
