Is DDR and DDR2 compatible with each other if they are the same
frequency?

I have 1 gig of memory in my system and I am thinking about adding
another.

This current memory is PC 3200 and I want to know if PC 3200 that is
DDR2 will be compatible with it.

thnx

No, they are completely different, even in pin count.

In a word, no.

Nope. New chipset and new socket, totally incompatible. Even if you
happen to have a motherboard with both DDR and DDR2 sockets you can't
use the two of them at the same time.
