Hi. I am currently using an Intel q9650 Cpu with a motherboard that only supports DDR2 memory. If I upgrade a little to a motherboard that supports DDR3, will the 9650 be compatable with the DDR3 memory? Thank you!

With the Intel® Core™ 2 Duos and Intel Core 2 Quads the memory controllers were still located on the board. So as long as the board supports that memory type you are good to go.
