P9X79 or RAMPAGE IV EXTREME Tags: Motherboards DDR2 Rampage Last response: December 16, 2011 6:11 PM in Motherboards Share Fod December 16, 2011 3:52:20 PM Hi I am thinking of buying an X79 board but not sure what one to go for. I have found the following two which I am interested in. http://www.dabs.com/products/asus-p9x79-deluxe-s2011-in... http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asus-rampage-iv-extreme-... This will be for gaming and the odd 3d movie. Would be grateful for any advice. I also wondered if ddr2 ram would work in ddr3 boards as I have 4 gig sticks that are ddr2. Cheers.

If you can afford it, you won't be disappointed. Unfortunately you can not use DDR2 memory in a DDR3 board since they use different voltages, timings and physical sockets. On the plus side, DDR3 memory is really cheap right now Fod December 16, 2011 6:11:56 PM Thanks for the info, I will have to make a decision soon. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
