More about ddr3
  1. 64 bit - yes

    DDR3 - Only found 1, which is DDR2 OR DDR3, but not both at the same time, which is kinda cool.

    May be more older boards that aren't currently listed on newegg...
  2. ASRock N68C-S UCC is the only board that support ddr2 and 3 in amd

    your cpu support 64bit os

    but this athlon cpu lacks ddr3 controler and thus you cannot use ddr3 with it
  3. true is right, after further reading:

    Number of Memory Slots2 x 240pin DDR2 slots + 2 x 240pin DDR3 slotsMemory StandardDDR2 1066 / 800 / 667 / 533

    DDR3 1600 / 1333 / 1066 / 800

    (please note:

    * DDR3 and DDR2 are supported separately

    * DDR3 memory is only supported by installing AM3 cpu)
  4. So if CPU lacks ddr3 controller you cant use ddr3 Ram but you can use ddr3 Graphics card?
