    They swapped out a newer board for an older for the PCI-E slot there apparently! What cpu where you running on the first? AMD or Intel? The prices on AM2 boards have come down as well as on 775 models that run DDR2 memory. You should specified the use of the same hardwares(memory, cpu) on the new board. I think you got stuck with an older type board since something like a 478 or 939 board would be seen with DDR at this time.

    sounds like they did a switch and gave you an older board. not cool i suggest you take it back for sure.

    I would be irrate there a little. That's precisely what happened. They simply swapped a DDR board with a PCI-E capability for your AGP DDR2 model in stead of installing one that runs the memory you already had. For future reference make sure you specify the things you want if you go somewhere for upgrade.

    sorry, but what method are you using to determine your ram type?
    You say you are running ddr ram now....how do you know?

    If you want a good free tool for seeing a total breakdown on all hardwares grab the SIW 1.68 system information tool at http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html If you know the make and model of the board they installed the specifications will easily clear that up fast with one quick look.
