Here's a DUMB question....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
As the title says, I have a dumb question, so here it is........

I currently have a socket 478 MOBO with an Intel P4 2.4 (currently @ 2.76MHz). It supports DDR SDRAM (240 Pin)

I'm working on a new build at the moment, and I'm getting 2X1GB of DDR2 ram. I'm buying everything piece by piece.


What would happen if I plugged the new DDR2 RAM into my old MOBO???




Thanks In Advance,
