Hi. Thanks in advance for any help, and sorry if I put this in the wrong thread. I`ll preface this by saying I`m looking in the future at having an am3 motherboard ddr3 memory and and am3 processor. I picked the asus m4n82 deluxe with an amd am3 socket amd athlon II x2 processor. i already have the memory ddr2 pc-6400. Later I`ll replace the cpu with a phenom black edition 965 deneb and 8 gigs of ddr3 ram. will the asus , the cpu and the memory i have work together until I can get the ddr it`s pricey. The unknown for me is really will the memory work because the board and cpu are both am3. Thanks again.
