GA-P45T-ES3G + 16GB DDR3-1600 (4x4)

Hi everyone. Thanks again for all your help and patience in the past. Please use my PC Specs as reference for this topic.

When this system was completed in January of '09, DDR3 was very expensive and 775 socket motherboards were near full maturity. I would like now to upgrade present DDR2 motherboard and memory with 16GB DDR3, and do so while retaining the rest of my system. This box has never let us down and competes well against "mainstream" i7s.

Now, 16GB of DDR2-800 cost between $310-$350, while 16GB of DDR3-1600 costs $120-$165. The possible replacement for my MB is the GA-P45T-ES3G for $80, with choices becoming more limited with time. My thinking is spend $200-$245 to finish what I started, skip the current gen tech, and revisit in 2 or 3 years.

Opinions and recommendations about my choice and/or hardware compatibility are very welcome. Thanks.

Disregard. After doing a little more research, it appears the P45 chip-set is not a good candidate for DDR3-1600. Thanks anyway.
