well im on my way to building the PC i talked about in another thread but i need to ask something.the mobo im going to use is a gigabyte ga-7vaxp VIA KT400+8235 chipset now i know its compatible with DDR ram but today i happened to be going through my spare PC parts and found a stick of 256MB PC133 Sdram so the question is can i install it on that mobo along with two 512 MB DDR ram?i know the mobo can take up to 3 gigs of ram but im am unsure if i can install ram that isnt DDR

No. SDRam has 168 pins and special keying. DDRam has 184 pins and different special keying.

yup.. its not compatible...

some mobos allow you to install both kinds of memory... sdram and ddr sdram... BUT you can't use em at the same time...
