Default question about a motherboard on Newegg

i found an item on newegg, it says it supports PCI-E 16, AGP, Dual Channel DDR, and DDR2 Ram.
i have an LGA 775 Pentium 4 2.66 GHz
i stick of 512 DDR 400
i stick of 256 DDR ??? but i know its lower than 400
and an x700 pro graphics card
so, i have 2 questions, one is to see if all the things i currently have will work on the motherboard because i was reading some reviews and some say it doesnt work, and some say it does
second, will the motherboard work if i used 2 DDR ram, and one DDR2 ram at the same time? itll be less than 2 GB of course.
Thanks in advance

Ok, first off, show us a link for that mobo, we can make a better decision that way.

Second off, you don't want to mix speeds. Try and stick with the same type of ram.

no you can only use ddr or ddr2, one at a time. so u cant mix ddr2 with ddr1. its either you are running ddr2 or ddr1

you x700 has to be a pci-express video card.

If you are going to buy ddr2 ram, get a different mobo, cause otherwise, that one is a bit of a waste. And if your graphics card is PCI-E, get a mobo with PCI-E only.
