Did you try to search for a review of the board?

From the specs listed in this review it appears that board is DDR3 only.

Yea I watched a video review, but not much was said on that.

I guess that is the only downfall for that board, that it wont support DDR2.

What happens if I put DDR2 into it?

either it will work at the speed its supposed to - if DDR3 is backwards compatible (slots that is not the mem) or it wont work

Not possible as the slot for DDR2 is different than DDR3.
You would have to get a board that supports both DDR2 and DDR3 (has both types of slots).

Like the Asus P5KC

Well sorta, its not as good as a MB, but arg I don't know what to do....cause DDR3 is really not worth it now.

I think I am going to do it. I think this time around I am not going to be smart, and I am going to spend money on something I just want to. Overall I think it's a better choice, it's just the RAM that is not a good choice at the moment. But F IT!

I am getting (soon, have to save up a bit) the...

with this RAM

& this CPU

Now I have to look for deals, so I don't know what the total final price will be.

But in terms of future, I should be good for awhile.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
