I just purchased a GA-EP45C-UD3R Motherboard from Gigabyte and I didnt check its compatibility with the processor that I bought. I bought an Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 Wolfdale 2.8GHz, it is not on the list of compatible CPUs but the E7300 is. Will it be ok to run the E7400 or should I return it?

That cpu (E7400) will work just fine with that board. :)

The motherboard supports both DDR2 and DDR3 RAM. It has four DDR2 slots and two DDR3 slots. I hope everything works out with this build. The motherboards that support both DDR2 and DDR3 RAM seem to have stability issues.
