ASRock N68C-S UCC is the only board that support ddr2 and 3 in amd

your cpu support 64bit os

but this athlon cpu lacks ddr3 controler and thus you cannot use ddr3 with it

true is right, after further reading:

Number of Memory Slots2 x 240pin DDR2 slots + 2 x 240pin DDR3 slotsMemory StandardDDR2 1066 / 800 / 667 / 533

DDR3 1600 / 1333 / 1066 / 800

(please note:

* DDR3 and DDR2 are supported separately

* DDR3 memory is only supported by installing AM3 cpu)
