  1. No, you cant do it. The slot the ram fits into is different, so DDR3 ram wont even fit in a DDR2 slot, The new power supply and graphics card would work for you though
  2. NO. you cannot upgrade DDR2 memory to DDR3 memory.....
    and the rest follows......

    let it die and just start fresh

  7. Well, a new componen could be transfered to new rig. ( I'm always do that changing one part to another eventualy it become new rig... )

    But it is true the PSU and GPU to to powerfull for your curent one , and u cannot use DDR3 in DDR2 mobo.
