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

Graphics ram is the dedicated memory that the video card uses, it is separate from system ram

That should work pretty well I guess as long as your PSU has a 6 pin PCI-E power connector
