Motherboard Swap Tags: Asus DDR3 Motherboards Memory Last response: July 11, 2010 2:51 AM in Motherboards Share HarjotSD July 9, 2010 10:57:37 PM Hello, I am planning on swapping my old motherboard (mainly because 3 of 4 ram ports dont work anymore) for a new motherboard: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... it sais it is a DDR3 motherboard, Well I have some memory that is DDR3 aswell, but it is DDR3 Tri-Channel Memory, would that still work on this motherboard ? also, what kind of power supply would i need, in order to use this ?

HarjotSD July 11, 2010 2:05:31 AM there is also the same motherboard available, but in DDR2 , i also have DDR2 Memory, would i be better off buying that motherboard using that memory , or does DDR3 have a serious performance difference ?
