it should work fine, your existing power supply is 300 watts according to the specs provided and the GT610 only needs a 300 watt power supply.......be sure to check the length of the GT610 to make sure it will fit your case

You could use a Gddr5 graphics card in a ddr2 board, if you wanted - the system ram has nothing to do with the video ram.

Yes. They are separate and distinct from each other....

...Otherwise no one can use graphic cards with DDR5 VRAM because no DDR5 RAM modules exist yet for motherboards and there are no motherboards that supports anything greater than DDR3 RAM yet.

Yes, the DDR3 that the GPU uses has nothing to do with the MB your installing it on
