I don't quite get this debacle about making a board with both DDR2 and DDR3, especially since the board is incapable of running DDR3 in tri-channel. Plus, what happens if one uses DDR3 with an AM2+ proc does it even have the memory controller for that? Undoubtibly, it wouldn't support filling all the RAM slots... looks to me like they just take up space that could be better utilized.

ex., 1 THEN 2, but 2 is more THAN 1.

I agree.  Seems like a waste of space.

Boards like this came out during the DDR->DDR2 transition too, and I didn't get the point then. I still don't now.  Is anybody really going to re-buy all their RAM later just to get a marginal (at best) boost in performance?
