Default DS3R Mobos

Ok, quick question, are the only differences bwtween the following mobos the fact that one can handle ddr3 and the other cant? If thats the only difference, do you think its worth the extra $30?

It's not worth looking into DDR3 right now, so go with the regular P35-DS3R.....and motherboards, that support two kinds of ram, are a little buggy.

I've seen in other places, where people were running their HZs with the P35-DS3R. So I guess it's compatible.

Crucial is a great performance RAM company. I'd say they are comparable to G. Skill. A lot of people have not gone to Crucial, because they are usually expensive.

The Ballixstix are pretty much comparable quality if not slightly better than the G.skill HZs however yes they are on average more expensive by abut 40 bucks. Still though if you like MIR then go ahead the Ballistix is very good stuff!
