Can I put DDR2 on a motherboard that supports DDR3, or is that out of the question? I ask because I can afford the motherboard now, but I want to wait to get the upgraded memory for a little bit if possible.

DDR2 RAM won't fit DDR3 slots.

The only way DDR2 RAM will fit on a motherboard that supports DDR3 is if that motherboard has both DDR2 and DDR3 slots.
