    Your motherboard will only support one type so stick with the same type you have. It won't support DDR2.

    It has two sets of two different ram types. One for ddr, and one for ddr 2.

    You can only use one type at a time. DDR 400 as good as DDR2 667.

    If I get the ddr2, I will take out the ddr1.

    Yes, go with the DDR2-533 and loose that PC-2100.
