  1. no, you cant stick ddr3 ram in a ddr2 mobo, either way around... if your buying a mobo with ddr3 support, make sure the socket # matches the one here http://ark.intel.com/products/42801/Intel-Pentium-Processor-E5700-(2M-Cache-3_00-GHz-800-MHz-FSB)

    ... now that i look, its LGA775
  2. Thanks for your answer nna2

    I'M going to buy this motherboard and yes it's LGA 775 motherboard http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_overview.aspx?ID=en-us0000483

    i'm asking you is there any performance problem with FSB because ram is 1333 and processor is 800
