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

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.
