    Downgrade the Ram or upgrade the Motherboard?

    I think I figured out the reason the ram has been giving me issues. (See 4Gb+4Gb = Firefox crash).
    I got my purple fans today and realized that there was spots on the motherboard that looked like the smaller plugs on the fans. (Yes I'm still a n00b). Google led me to a page that told me about my motherboard. I found out that my motherboard only takes DDR2 ram. And I have DDR3 in there right now. I think this solves my issue as to why my computer crashes when I try to put 8GB of ram in it....

    So do I upgrade the motherboard or downgrade the ram?

    you can still buy ddr2 memory, there are still systems being released that only support ddr2 memory so it isn't going away any time soon
