    Solution:

    It will not work since the speeds of the ram are different.

    For Example:

    Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 Mhz (2x1gb) - Slot 1, then if this is true you would need Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 Mhz (1x2gb).

    DDR3 and DDR2 modules can not be utilized at the same time. Each memory type is supported seperately.
  3. Calvin7 is correct, with your mobo the MAX DRAM is 8GB either 2x4GB of DDR2 or 2x4GB of DDR3 -

    No idea what of what ddbtkd456 is saying or trying to say, makes no sense
