Hi guys

I'm looking into the Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 mobo for my Core 2 Duo.. and just wondering if I'm right in assuming my current two 512meg sticks of DDRAM (400Mhz, PC3200) will not work, given that the mobo specs only mention DDR2.

Cheers for any help.

not only will they not work, they won't even fit in the sockets ;) . A board that supports DDR2 memory will only take DDR2 memory.

Thanks mate.

I think maybe they design these sockets for people like me to protect them from themselves.... :)

yes the DDR2 is a different size in the fact that it has more pins and they will not fit in DDR dimm's, and vice versa. but i have heard of people cramming the ram in, only to have it blow up!
