Hello,

I have an MSI 740GTM-P21 MB w/DDR2 and want to know what utility I can use to keep my DDR2 on a new motherboard w/DDR3

You can't. Same pin count, but totally different "keying" on the modules. Can't be done.

No as said, and the good news is a 2x4GB kit is ~$45-$50 or a 2x2GB kit is ~$25-$30. note: you will need a 64-bit OS to access >4GB.
