  1. Yes, they are backwards compatible. However, with that board you won't be able to utilize the DDR3 memory controller.
  2. Thanks for the responses...

    DDR3 memory controller... Do you mean that DDR3 won't work?

  3. No, the first motherboard you mentioned wouldn't work with DDR3.

    It's a good switch. The new one you've picked will.
