    Upgrading Motherboards

    Im looking to upgrade my motherboard. While looking around I've found a lot of boards that suppord DDR ram. Currently I've got SD ram and am wanting to keep what I've got into the new board. My question is if I get a board that supports DDR will it support SD ??? I only ask because (as far as i know) ddr is twice as fast as sd so I guess I guess just figured it would be supported.

    can anyone point me in the right direction?

    or does anyone have any good links to sites w/info?

    thanks again

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You can get mobos that support both types of RAM. However, your SDRAM will not fit into the DDR slot, so it won't work.

    I recommend doing the full upgrade and moving to DDR. It's well worth the money.
