Memory Type and Speed question. Tags: Memory DDR3 Last response: July 2, 2012 7:56 PM in Memory Share gman_42 July 2, 2012 7:23:06 PM After some very successful research, I have decided to upgrade my computer with a new GPU, PSU, and possibly RAM. My question is if DDR3 memory can be used with a lower clocked stick(s) but still DDR3. Also, can DDR2 be used with DDR3?
