I have a geforce gt 610 graphics card which is not supported by The Sims 3 (the performance is not satisfying). I've read that radeon hd 6670 is supported by the base game and all expansion packs. But it's a ddr3 card and i have a ddr2 ram memory on my motherboard. So, my question is: Will my game work if I use that radeon graphics card because it's ddr3 and my ram memory is ddr2? Thanks in advance. :??:

GPU RAM and system RAM (on the motherboard) have nothing to do with each other.
It will be fine.

Ok, thanks. You know, I've also read that I should buy a PCI-Express 2.0 card if my motherboard has PCI-Express slot 1.0 or 1.1, which is my case. However, this radeon card is a PCI-Express 2.1 card. Is that irrelevant, too?
