    The simple answer is they are sized differently, and work a little bit differently as well. You will be unable to use DDR RAM in this older computer.

    See this page from Crucial for information on compatible RAM for your computer: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Evo%20D500%20DT%20P4%201.5GHz#

    For best results I suggest purchasing a set of 3 of one of these sticks of RAM. http://bit.ly/eaCTra All should work fine, and you won’t notice any performance difference between one brand or another.
