I just ordered the Ryzen 5 2600 today since it has a huge discount right now due to black friday sales. I noticed however that the CPU says it supports DDR4 memory. Currently the RAM in my PC is DDR3 and my motherboard says DDR3 next to the RAM slots. Does this mean that this new CPU will not be compatible with my current setup?

If I can't use this CPU with my current RAM setup, what are my options? Am I totally screwed and need to get a new motherboard/RAM or what?
