Ram help what does this mean

ok a noob question i am changing my wifes m/b from a am2 to a am2+/am3 m/b
she got 2 gig of ddr2 800 ram that i want to keep and was putting a cheap am3 chip in new motherboard so down the line i can upgrade more if want to she just uses it for email etcetc but when i went to site checked the motherboard specs it says

biostar A780L

Support Dual Channel DDR2 533/667/800/1066(1066 by AM2+/AM3 CPU) MHz

does that mean i need 1066 memory to run any am2+/am3 cpu or could i still use the ddr2 800 ram ??

  1. As per the info you've provided, the boards features DDR2 memory running from 533 MHz upto 1066 MHz.. So your current memory is surely supported.. As a side note, considering your wife's real need with the PC, i don't see the need for you to change anything if all is running smoothly..
