However, the RAM will be running single channel. You will lose the performance boost of dual channel.

But for how cheap ram really is, you need to upgrade to dd3.
AMD is still the cheaper, better budget build. I have not seen a mention of DDR/DDR2 memory. There is no need to "upgrade" to DDR3, all suggestions have been for DDR3 RAM. Also, you can't upgrade from one RAM to another without a motherboard change.
