You are helping a friend build a new gaming PC. To save on costs they have opted to buy a new motherboard but keep their existing DDR2 memory from their previous PC. After having some trouble getting the memory to fit into the motherboard you check the motherboard manufacturer's documentation and find they recommend their own DDR3 memory. How should you proceed?

  • Purchase DDR3 memory from any manufacturer
  • Enable the DDR downgrade feature using a jumper on the motherboard's pins
  • Buy the recommended memory from the same manufacturer as the motherboard
  • Purchase a DDR2 to DDR3 slot adapter
