No it does not support DDR3. It supports 667-MHz ECC and NON-ECC and 800MHz ECC DDR2

Thanks for your replys.
 
Is it being locked in the BIOS, since the Intel X38 chipset does support DDR3 memory?

DDR3 dimms are physically different from DDR2 dimms. The motherboard would have to have DDR3 slots to be able to put such dimms in the system.

I think ASUS has a (desktop) motherboard that can support 2 DDR3 dimms or 4 DDR2 dimms, but this kind of setup is expensive and therefor rare. It seems Dell opted to just select DDR2 for this system, and I wouldn't expect them to upgrade this system to add DDR3 support (it'll probably be reserved for a succesor of the T3400).
