    DDR2 AND DDR3 are keyed differently you cant install DDR2 ram in a DDR3.

  2. ok thank you for the help

    much appreciated
  3. no problem to sum it up you will need a new mother board and possibly a new CPU. Speed difference between the 2 you really can't see the difference. I would put the money some where else like a SSD. If you don't already have one of those.
