Default Re: Motherboard socket 478 supporting DDR2?

without trying to step on anyones toes here....DDR2 at this point and time is just the next step in evolution which means because of design standards(backward compatability) this first step forward is only equal to the last step of ddr dual channel systems. In 3 months, after the transistion, then ddr2 will be the new standard in memory. and will show a most remarkable difference in usage especially with 64 bit computer systems.
So, I think Banchan is saying that it at this time it is not that big of a deal and he would be right. The best thing here would be to wait a few months and then look into the DDR2 thing.

Sounds good. However I am building a computer right now and I guess I do not want to have to wait for that long.

It supports upto 2gb for DRR 400/333Mhz and upto 2gb for DDR2 533/400Mhz. It's a perfect transition board between DDR and DDR2
thats y this MOBO is perfect.
