Have you got your mobo manual if so this will tell you which RAM your board supports as it is feasible that your board supports both types you list. If not you could google the make and model number of your board to find it they are marked on the board somewhere.

Whichever RAM you end up using make sure you use the same type in all your slots as memory conflict probs can be a bugger
