Do anyone know if these X58 chipsets are compatible with DDR2 ram as well as DDR3?? I am looking to save up for next years upgrades.

With Intel's Core i3/i5/i7 architecture the memory controller is integrated into the CPU and only works with DDR3 memory.

I've pretty much resigned myself to holding onto my Q9450 / DDR2 machine until 'the next big thing' comes along.
