NO, unless the mboard has two different types of ram slots for both types.

Asus M4a785td-v evo can only use DDR3 ram

DDR2 & DDR3 are NOT interchangeable. The may both have 240-pins but the notch in the contact edge is in a different location, plus they run at different voltages.

There was a Gigabyte board a year or two ago where you could use DDR2 RAM in certain slots or DDr3 RAM in other slots, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend such a board.
