if they have only ddrII slots then no dont even think about it, some boards (asrock dialvsta <sp?> ) have both slots but you cant run both ddr and ddrII at the same time.

DDR1 will not physically fit into a DDR2 slot. But, as mullered said, there ARE motherboards with DDR1 and DDR2, but you can't use both types of memory at the same time. I was looking at this one when I was planning to go on a slow upgrde path from my old S478 system to a Pentium D while keeping my old graphics card and memory, but my uncle offered me a much better deal: $120 for the system in my specs lmao

nice, thanks.

Im looking for a mate as he basically wants to upgrade his whole computer, hes planning on getting a new mobo (socket AM2 with Sli / Crossfire) but he didnt wanna spend more money on new ram... i might convince him to get some, its not expensive.

Hes also getting a 1950xt and AMD X2 5200+

Anyone got some good mobo reccomendations, preferably with SLi support.

Thanks

You sure you want an SLI board, with an ATI gfx card? You won't be able to run 2 ATI video cards in it.

Don't you mean a Crossfire board?
