No, only DDR3. Oh well, ram isn't that expensive compared to the rest to the computer.

It's a sod isn't it? Try to update your machine and you find that it's obsolete...

Nope. If I remember correctly they have a different number/arrangement of pins to stop people using them in the wrong slots as they're incompatible.
