Depends on your motherboard. Check your paperwork or the Manufacturer'* web site...

In general, it will fit and should work. Whether or not your board will run at top speed will depend on if it'* set up to use 2700

If it'* the same FSB speed, say 333MHz or 400MHz, then, yes, you can. For instance, DDR 333 RAM comes in a few different internal speeds, thus the 2100, 2700, 3200 numbers...

EDIT--> Okay, scratch that. DDR 266 MHz is PC2100. DDR 333 MHz is PC2700, and DDR 400 MHz is PC3200.

So it looks as if your MB is 266MHz FSB, so, yes, PC2100 is all you can go. There. At least I gave ya some more insight...I hope...lol...
