Ddr3 with pentium d

hey all,
just a quick question. I've read that you cant use pentium D with ddr3 dual channel but i got this MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128449
and it is good for both. so does that mean it's okay to buy some ddr3?

  1. Its all good to get DDR3 memory.. Especially given the fact that you can use it if and when you decide to perform a complete platform upgrade.. Thus, getting some good DDR3 memory now will become a sort of long term investment.. Moreover they are priced almost identical to DDR2 nowadays..
  2. In theory, yes; I don't see why it wouldn't, architecture wise...

    I don't know why you'd even bother though, considering how SLOW the Pentium D is these days...Seems like a waste to me...
  3. Maybe the pentium D is for free and is a holdover CPU until a lga775 quad can be bought. The DDR3 will work fine.
  4. IMO if you can afford to buy the mobo, and afford to buy the ddr3 I would just wait till you could afford to buy the cpu. this way you can move to intel or amd's newer sockets.
  5. ^ Agreed. I too say buy CPU + RAM + board at the same time. Unless you need a system ASAP.
