the X38 boards work with every Core architecture CPU so dont worry man.
Hi again .. i now hear from a friend that DDR2 RAM can work on DDR3 motherboards and the other way around.
And he doesent mean a combo motherboard with bouth ddr2 and ddr3 slots but on any ddr3 motherboard as bouth ddr2 and ddr3 are 240 pin.
Any truth to that ?
that is absolutely wrong, the whole system is keyed so its physically impossible to install DDR2 on a DDR3 mobo...
why else are there combo boards?
I figured as much .. just asked to be sure
hey man, how much are you willing to spend on your setup?
DDR3 is very expensive and DDR2 is still more powerful than the lower end DDR3 so yea.... i can help you out.
I didnt buy any RAM i got 1GB Kingston HyperX 1375MHz CL7 DDR3 as a gift so it will stick around for a month or so till i get the $ to upgrade RAM a bit
I also didnt buy a GPU yet i have an x1950pro 512MB that iv been using for a while now . Ill upgrade that too as soon as i get the $ .. i figured the motherboard and the cpu are more important atm. Upgrading the GPU on an Athlon 64 3000+ is not a very smart move and i already have that DDR3 ram ram sitting in a box so why not get a DDR3 board
But thanks for the offer man
