Hello and welcome to the forums
IMO its not worth it to change your motherboard only because of adding a DDR3 RAM because the difference between DDR2 and DDR3 isn't much.So if you are going to upgrade, change your CPU as well.

for me thats not an option right now.... I have to stick with this Processor for the next one year or so & as im tight on budget & the only thing fall within my reach is the i3-530 which gives out more or less the same performance.

but if i upgrade to ddr3 ram atleast i can use them for my new build.this is my main reason i want to upgrade.

Hey Maziar i just googled a little bit and found out that, switching to ddr3 on a e7400 wont give me much. so I am going for ddr2 instead

Do you think these Rams will be compatible with my Motherboard (XFX 9300 nforce 730i) ??

I have 4 choices.
