A friend gave me some DDRIII RAM today.....but I am currently using DDRII RAM. Can I use both? Or are they not compatible at all with one another?

Have a Phenom Quad core CPU and soon to be gone Geforce 9800 GT GPU as well if this helps.

    Not compatable, DDR3 uses a different pin set up, and requires different voltages etc. 

    Hope this solves your question.
