You can try. System will post or not. If it does work, the memory will only run at DDR266 speed, which is the max for this board. :)

The memory will probably get underclocked at 266 Mhz.

On a related note (RAM & mobo), will PC 133 SDRAM be usable on a DDR mobo? I know that the connector on the RAM is different (2 notches on PC 133, 1 notch on DDR). I don't think this will work, but I am just curious. I know it will not work the other way, due to the 1 notch in the DDR.

There are some boards that have both DDR slots and PC133 slots (like the old ECS K7S5A), but Pranav81 is right, you can't put PC133 in a DDR slot.
