    I have Crucial 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) 2 sticks.

    I was wondering what my limitations are when buying a motherboard.

    Can any DDR motherboard use this ram? Or does it have to specific to DDR and not like... DDR2 and DDR3.

    Obviously I'm trying to get a new mobo that can use a 9600 vid card but also want to keep my ram I have.

    Any motherboard that has a PCI-Express slot for the 9600 card and 184pin DDR RAM slots will work with this combo.

    I feel the need to say that this probably is not worth doing. You'll spend as much on a decent DDR motherboard as you would on a DDR2 motherboard, which will be far superior in many ways.

    RAM is cheap now, and you can easily pick up 2gb of nice DDR2 RAM for about $40.

    You still find a fairly decent mobo that will use that ram on Ebay
