As the title says, , will 3gb DDR3 memory (single stick) be weaker than 4gb (2gb x 2 gb) DDR2 memory? The shop i'll be getting my new parts for pc doesnt offers DDR3 2 gb x 2 gb memory sticks :(  ; it only offers a single 3gb or 6gb ones. The motherboard i'll be getting is phenom ll black 965.

So i am wondering how will DDR3 3gb 1600 MHz CL8 fare against a DDR2 4gb memory?

I'll be getting my parts from here. It is in singapore dollars

*edit, the pc im getting will be used for some heavy-casual gaming

A single 3GB stick? As far as I know, that doesn't exist. Are you sure it isn't a single 2GB stick paired with a single 1GB stick?
