alright, I bought my computer in AUG 2002, it is a pentium 4 and it came with 512 RDRAM. I recently had a harddrive failure and I wanted to upgrade to a SATA harddrive so I purchased a new motherboard... motherboard gets here but the RAM slots don't match my RDRAM. My question is this: is my processor compatible with ddr ram or what else can I do? I've been without a computer for 3 months and now that I've dropped 200 dollars on parts I'm starting to freak out

intel stopped making chipsets for rdram a long time ago after the crap they put the whole industry through a few years ago!

so that means I'm chill with just replacing my ram with DDR? and if so are there any special things I should pay attention to? I'm probably going to get 1 gig.

Yup the P4P800SE uses regular 184pin PC3200 DDR400 SDRAM (NOT 240pin DDR2).

So you're all set :D
