Graphic card and motherboard question.

Hello Tom's Hardware community, I was wondering since the graphics card that I plan on getting, it says,"Memory Type: GDDR5" On my motherboard, it says,"Memory Type: DDR3" Does this mean that the graphics card that I want to get is not compataible with the mother board I want to get?

    Don't worry; the two are completely compatible. The memory type of your GPU does not have to match the memory specifications on your motherboard. Only system RAM needs to match motherboard specifications.

    Oh thank goodness, thank you. But are these two items good or are they just bad?
  3. The two components are great for their price range. You shouldn't have any problems.
