Memory standard, what does it mean?

Okay, so I have this motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131631&cm_re=M4A89GTD-_-13-131-631-_-Product

It has a memory standard of this: Memory Standard DDR3 1866(OC)/1600(OC)/1333/1066

Now, the memory I would like to get is DDR2, 800. Would this memory work on my motherboard? Or would I have to get DDR3?

Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

More about memory standard mean
  1. No, you need to get ddr3 and preferably 1333 or 1600 (better) memory speed.

    By OC they mean you just bump up the dram multiplier in bios.

    That is an awesome motherboard! Its basicly the same as mine (M4A79XTD EVO) but with the 890 chipset and USB3! Yea, you will need DDR3, I got some Corsair dominator 1600mhz for mine, though I havent yet got around to clocking it up to max. AMD cpus say that the max memory bandwidth is 1333mhz but yea as fastx21, the multiplier works great.
