What said that? Is that the complete output?
Remember that we don't sit in front of your computer with you, so you have to be verbose about what you do and what results you get.

I don't know how reliable these online scans are. The only way to really know which hardware you need is to open the case, look for the motherboard model and post it here.
But usually I would say if that scan says that you need DDR then DDR is the one to go.

In that case you need DDR1, your motherboard is somewhat weird to me, I have never seen socket LGA775 boards with DDR1.

I'm a bit suprised by that TobiSGD, there is a lot of LGA 775 systems with DDR1. Intel 910GL, 915GL and 915PL chipsets which were fairly common with low end 775 systems are DDR1 only. VIA and SiS also did some low end 775 chipsets which were DDR1 only as well.

I changed to LGA775 relative late (used AMD for years, before) and didn't work in the hardware department at that time, so I totally missed that.

Funny, but I only own 1 LGA 775 system, and I was given that. I'd say 'thanks sis and brother in law!' for the LGA 775 system, but they thought it was borked, one debian install later it runs 100%.

Apart from a very few times in the workshop, most of the DDR1 LGA 775 systems I've seen have been 'kerbside collection' (local council junk pickup).

DDR and DDR1 is the same thing.

Well computer has certain set of limited resources like CPU power and available memory and graphics card. The purpose of the computer is to run applications. Those applications need OS to run on. So lightweight OS is the one that does not consume all the available resources offered to keep itself running but leaves enough available for applications as well.

For Core i7 with 8GB RAM, Windows 7 is lightweight OS. For 486SX 25Mhz with 4MB RAM, Windows 95 would be heavy weight OS.
