No. PCI-E 3.0 graphic cards will physically fit within PCI-E 2.0/1.0 graphic card slots on the motherboard.

Yes. System memory and graphic card memory have nothing to do with each other. You can install a GDDR5 graphics card onto a motherboard that has DDR3 RAM.

Yes, any PCI-E slot will fit any graphics card..... Now, you computer case might be too small, check the length of the card you want vs the space in you PC for the card. Next, your current computer power supply might not have enough wattage 500watts is basically the min (yeah, less for a good supply ....)
