Re: graphics card upgrade
Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.
DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms. DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If it works fine with one stick of ram. Then it is the ram that is incompatible. You can try different settings but you may end up that the stick isn't compatible. Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you, Lee
PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM,
and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module.
"PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible.
PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins.
PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins.
DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.
You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2
Well first of all, there is no "adapter". You have to use the specified RAM that you motherboard supports. Secondly, even if there was an adapter so to speak, it would not be beneficial. The only difference performance wise between DDR and DDR2 is speed. So if your motherboard supports DDR, and you had an "adapter", your motherboard would only read the DDR2 at DDR speed. In my opinion, DDR2 is not really worth the upgrade to another motherboard just for DDR2. If you want the biggest bang for your buck, upgrade the CPU, or put more memory in the motherboard you already have. Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate. Thanks.
If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.
No you cannot use ddr2 with this motherboard, this motherboard only supports ddr. And also ddr2 is not backwards compatible with ddr dimms because the notch is in a different position and the pin density is slightly higher then ddr dimms. ddr2 is a 240 pin module, ddr is a 184-pin module.
