It is not needed but you might need to if you upgrade to a new motherboard/processor that only uses them. If you are happy with your current performance then no need to change anything

You want to play the latest games and you have decided to limit yourself to a dead and aging platform? At this point it isn't even about the RAM, its more the CPU.

If you want to keep up, you need relatively new hardware, that simple.

My experience with my 1100T when I was using it on a DDR2 platform, It was decent, even in gaming with DDR2 800mhz. Since I moved to a newer board with DDR3 memory I didn't notice much improvement over DDR3, Only thing I noticed that was an improvement was on the DDR3 1600mhz ram I can OC the CPU-NB higher and gain more performance over the DDR2 memory where I could only get 2400mhz stable. DDR3 with a CPU-NB at 2899mhz I noticed a big difference not only in desktop usage, but in games the FPS gains were their.
