Possibility of running SDRAM and DDR SDRAM at the same time?

  1. I’m looking into a cheap mobo and came across the ECS K7S5A Pro

    This mobo has 4 DIMM slots, 2 for SDRAM, 2 for DDR SDRAM. I currently have in my older PC SDRAM, but 3 sticks. I was wondering if it was possible to use SDRAM and DDR SDRAM at the same time with this mobo?

    Personally, I don’t think so. But I’ve only really been reading about this stuff for a week or so. Hehe.

    I don't think that that is possible at all. I seem to remember reading an article at www.tomshardware.com that suggested that it was not possible at all.

    It's not possible. The AliMagik chipset allowed you to use either or on the motherboard, but you had to use only one type.

    BTW - it was a pretty crappy chipset.

    Indeed you can not.

    You can run one or the other.
