Question: Can I fit DDR3 RAM in a DDR2 slot on my older motherboard?

Answer:
No.

The key card notch is physically different. Therefore you won’t be able to fit it in the slot.

If your motherboard is designed for DDR2 RAM, it would be wise to get DDR2 RAM for it. If you have DDR3 RAM available to you, you may want to look into getting a motherboard that supports it.

This applies to desktops as well as laptops/notebooks/portables(apple)
