eum i'm pretty new with computers so, i bought a pc and it has a Gforce GT 9400 gfx card and asus m2n68-am se2 as motherboard.
Ram is 2x DDR2 800 mhz 2gb
Is the motherboard DDR3 compatible and what is the difference with DDR2?

No your motherboard isn't DDR3 compatible, and you can't use a DDR3 RAM on a DDR2 motherboard.
Overall the performance difference between DDR2 and DDR3 is about 5-15%(depending on the models)

okay thank you, but i got a problem and i can't find a solution, i have 2 DDR 2 800 mhz 2gb ram but i always have blue screen.
and when i remove a Ram of 2gb i don't have that blue screen anymore is that ram card broken cuz i tested and switched the ram cards and it's still with the same ram card that it happens.

Does someone know how i can solve this problem or any suggestions.
Sorry for my bad english :)

Then try, test each of your sticks simultaneously and check if you get BSOD(Blue screen of death) with either or not, if it didn't happen,then test your RAMs with "memtest" ,run it for 4-8hrs and check if it reports any errors or not

ok i did that and there are no errors with memtest but so installed both RAM cards and then i had that blue screen of death again, so i tested with one RAM card that i have problems with and i have that blue screen then i restarted and used the other RAM card and there is no problem.
I don't get it anymore i guess i will buy a new 2gb 800 DDR2 RAM for 52 euros...
