  1. Here are three from newegg:

    What CPU do you wish to use?
    Why do you want to go this route? You might be costing yourself more than you are gaining - especially if just trying to reuse some memory.

    A number of high quality AM2+ boards can still be had, but if you mean both types on the same board, no, nothing comes to mind. And said AM2+ board will use all current AMD cpu's.
  4. no no I am just looking to upgrade to ATX mobo (from micro) and dont wanna have to buy the newer (more expensive) Ram but down the road I will be able to afford so I was trying to "future-proof" my comp

    Thanks for your help

    Do you mean you want a new mobo and new RAMs but you want DDR2 because DDR3 are more expensive now?
  6. I am looking to get a new mobo but I wanna be able to contiue to use the DDR2 ram I currently have and not have to buy DDR3 right now, BUT i would like to find a mobo that supported both types of ram that way when I have the cash I can upgrade the ram.
  7. I see. The jetway motherboards posted by rockyjonh above are what you need. You can plug in the DDR2 RAMs you have now and then you have money, buy DDR3 Ram & plug them in too.

    How much of the DDR2 RAM do you have now?
  8. Hello

    I have OCZ 4GB DDR2 1066
  9. For the best system, I think you should wait and get a better board than the ones I listed above, even if it means waiting until you can afford DDR3 memory. Then you can get a good AM3 DDR3 mobo which will give you the best futureproofing and also be a good all around board.

    I agree with rockyjohn. What is your current motherboard, anyway? Maybe you can make the most of it while saving up for the new AM3 and DDR3 RAMs.
  11. I have the Asus M3N78-VM pretty solid board had no problems with it
  12. 1066 memory is actual not too bad, even if DDR2, depending on the timings. What are the timings? Do you plan to OC? Is your memory 2 x 2GB?

    Do you require a micro-ATX mobo? Note that for both of the micro-ATX boards in the list I provided of JetWay boards supporting both DDR2 and DDR3, the maximum DDR3 memory is 1066; in the ATX board it is only 1333 - so neither leaves much room for getting faster memory. And if the timings are slower than what you have, the DDR3 memory might be slower.

    It is solid. Better stick to it for now and save up for an AM3 motherboard + DDR3 RAM.
    We don't know what is the complications in a hybrid RAM system and you may be in for trouble if you go that route.
    And honestly, I do not see how you will need more than 4GB of RAM but I you feel you need more now, why don't you spend the money on additional 4 GB of RAM and you will have 8GB of RAM in a solid board instead of spending it on a hybrid RAM motherboard.
