Default i'm not sure

this will probably sound stupid, but i'm not totally sure what a DDR2 is. In the product description is says: DDR Standard: DDR 400 (PC 3200).
I'm sorry i don't understand everything quite yet. I'm fairly new at computer building. I'll give you a link to the site the MoBo is on.

That can wait. But yeah, you shouldnt try sticking DDR2 RAM in a DDR motherboard.
