YES, if your motherboard accepts DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory. If your motherboard has both types of ram memory slots.

BUT, you can ONLY use DDR Sdram, OR, DDR2 Sdram.

You Cannot use both types of ram memory in the motherboard, at the same time.
(BIOS will only recognize one type at a time)


NO, if your motherboard does not have ram slots for both DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

Double Data Rate Sdram ram memory modules, have 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
92 on Each side,

DDR2 Sdram ram memory modules have 240 contact pins.

I have pc p4 3.06 intel processor and i hav now DDR1 RAM in my pc can i use ddr2 ram by removing ddr1 ram will my motherboard support ddr2 ram


Sorry but you cannot interchange ddr1 for ddr2. They are different kinds of RAM, and your chipset (865GV) can only accept ddr1. If you want to use ddr2, or even ddr3 then upgrade to a newer motherboard.

No you cannot use it .... *********** board will not support DDR2.... but if have the slot for both DDR1 then you can use DDR1.. but i will suggest you to use Ram for same memory .. But you can use 521 & 128 together , no problem.

My mother boaard has written ddr1 and ddr2 near the ram slot. Is it pssible to put ddr2 ram? before it had ddr1 ram


It's not because DDR1 ram slot Motherboard are created only for DDR1.
DDR2 are the newest design of memory module by a new MOBO.

There is no Motherboard that are design with two kinds of Memory Slot DDR1 & DDR2.

I never that before.

Can i use ddr2 ram in my pc inplace od ddr1 i cn purchase pc 07?


Hey there, Check for the slots given on your motherboard, whether all the slots are same; However a motherboard can support only one type of module either DDR1 or DDR2. your motherboard has only DDR1 slots. You cannot upgrade DDR1 to DDR2 cause the Memory Module or notches are different than eachother. Gimme Acknowladgement by rating me. Thanx - Romy Decostza

IS ddr2 ram works on ASUS P4GE-MX? or only DDr 1 is supported by this motherboard???


Number of PIN DDR2 more much than DDR1. If you install on DDR2 Slot DDR1, can not be installed correctly, because the location of the key slot DDR1 and DDR2 is different.

Look the picture, and look the different

I look for your maindboard, it's only supported DDR1.
