Will DDR3 work in a DDR2 Motherboard?

Sorry for being such a putz on this but I am frustrated by what seems to be a large selection of reasonably priced DDR3 RAM and a very small and expensive selection of DDR2.

I plan to use a GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H for a HTPC build and want to be sure to purchase the correct memory. I added a bunch of DDR3 choices to my newegg wish list before discovering the RAM compatibility question with this particular MB.

When I looked for DDR2, it seems way more scarce and expensive.

Any help / explanation would be great.

Any thoughts on inexpensive DDR2 4MB memory for this motherboard if I have to stick with DDR2?

Thank you in advance!
