Default ddr and ddr2 can it be done

I saw that some motherboards come out with 2 slots of ddr and 2 slots of ddr2. I have 3X256 ddr2 333 ram and 1X256 pc2100 ddr and was wondering if installed on a motherboard would it work? And if it wont would anyone know whats a reasonably priced motherboard that has at least 3 ddr2 slots? thanx guys

No it will not work. even on motherboards that have both you still have to choose only to use DDR or only to use DDR2. It will not work with both in it at the same time.

No, you cant use them both, only one or the other. A board that has both, it has to be an ASRock or a Jetway, maybe even an ECS. Those are crap boards, and they try to make up for it by using ridiculously deceiving marketing.

One or the other.
