Re: Ram upgrade
The majority of LGA 775 motherboards use DDR2, so still not sure you'd be able to use the RAM now.
Take a pic of the Mainboard and Memory tabs when you get a chance.
Also sounds like you're trying to upgrade in steps, RAM then motherboard then CPU.
Your current CPU won't work in a motherboard that is compatible with an i7 hex, and the RAM is still in question.
Best bet is to probably just wait and save, the longer you hold out the more likely you'll get a better price.
Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
