Just a quick question...i have two sticks of DDR2 installed on my computer and got a free 1GB stick of DDR. Will this hurt my mobo if i install it on there? I have the slots for DDR and DDR2, just wondering what the general consensis would be...

Thanks!

Indeed, besides you wouldn't want DDR when DDR2 is much faster and not all that expensive.

But you are saying you got both slots? What mobo is this?

Stick to DDR2, the only reason it has both 184 and 240 pin slots is so people could use their old ram without having to try and come up with the funds to get ddr2.

Is this system board an ASUS? If it is the ASUS P5GDC-Deluxe, as my search indicated, the board will not support both types of RAM at the same time. Also, the manual implies that both types of ram, depending on what is used should be dual channel.
