I have 1GB PC2100 DDR SDRAM (registered) for my AthlonXP 1800+. I just bought a new mobo (ABIT AN7 motherboard) that seems to only support unbuffered DDR. Can I use my registered DDR ram on this mobo? Or do I have to get another mobo?

No, you can only use unbuffered RAM on your mobo.

IMO you should try to sell your registered RAM and buy some unbuffered sticks...it would be hard to find a good mobo for the AMD XP (non opteron/hammer/etc) that supports registered RAM.

I don't want to risk screwing anything up permanently.

good idea..you should have done more research before purchasing your RAM . most mobos dont support registered RAM. only servers and the like for the most part
