Hello all, I received a new gigabite motherboard/AMD Phenom II 3.0 x 4 combo for christmas as well as 4gigs of corsair ddr3 RAM. However, looking at the motherboard it appears that it only supports up to ddr2 ram. I'm wondering if there's any chance that the ddr3 ram will work with the motherboard. If not what is my best course of action. Should i return the combo and get a motherboard that supports ddr3 ram or just send back the ddr3 ram and get some ddr2 ram. I'm not sure what the pros and cons of ddr2 vs ddr3 are. Someone told me that ddr2 actually has less latency than ddr3 so im wondering how much truth there is to that statement. Also, if it is helpful my intentions for the computer are gaming such as starcraft II and WOW.
Sory Bro but your given board only supports DDR2 RAM but if you can, then you should go for another board Supporting DDR3(kingston) because it is more faster than DDr2 and if any thing goes wrong with it in future, then this wil be easily available in market than DDR2
