Hi all, i currently have a socket 775 ddr2 motherboard and i am wondering is it worth to upgrade to just for DDR3 memory? It's probably going to cost me around $70 for mobo and ram combined.
Nope DDR3 ram is only slightly better than DDR2, you get more performance out of a newer CPU, A LOT MORE PERFORMANCE in fact. If you lacking ram for what your doing and have enough CPU just get more DDR2 ram, thats what I just did, I just picked up another 2gb, unfortunately I accidently bought a single 2gb stick and not 2x1gb, guess thats what I get the one time I didn't double check my order. Oh well still a big improvement having more ram even if thats not in dual channel anymore.
