Default Dimm/sdram/ddr - Ahhh!

Most likely if your buying a new Mobo, it'll be DDR Ram, SDRAM would not work with a DDR mobo. As for the DIMM, i thought that was just a name for the slot that memory goes into and the stick of ram. Not so sure, but, different types of memory cant be compatible with others.

Yeah; DDR has different stuff in it so it doesn't work. As far as I know the cuts in the bottom to make it fit are different too so you probably couldn't even get it in.

Decide on the mbd,go to the website and read what it offers,
the answer is probably no.This is a whole new move your makeing isn't it ?
Any older sdram ram will only disable the newer ddr ram if it was possible.
