  1. Yes, DDR3 is the RAM that your motherboard supports, GDDR5 is the VRAM that comes on the graphics card
    The graphics card doesn't use your ram slot, it uses the PCI-Express slot

    Yep, it has the PCI-E slot

    just make sure your power supply is sufficient
  4. SO I THINK SYSTEM RAM IS TOTALLY DIFFRENT FROM GRAPHICS RAm only thing mombo must hv pci-e slot..
  5. Graphics ram is the dedicated memory that the video card uses, it is separate from system ram
