oh and another thing, is my computer's ram slot compatible with this ram?

okay, i just found out that ddr is 184 pins which I have and the one in the above site is a 240 pins. I'm looking at the ddr (184 pins) and ddr2 (240 pins) ram slots and they look exactly the same. Is it possible I can fit the 240 pins in my computer?

DDR 184 pin.
DDR2 240 pin

Its impossible to fit them in a different slot and it'll destroy your RAM if you forced them.

For Compatibility:

We need to know your motherboard especially. And please clean the dust and residues on that fan, heatsink, and computer. That'll hinder many things and will cause unnecessary problems. Hoover it up.
