yes; the system memory does not limit or affect the memory used for the video card (unless it has turbocache, but it still doesn't matter what kind of memory it is).

Yup, no reason why they won't. Thats why we have slots on the motherboard, as the things installed in them don't have to be dependant on the rest of the system. You could use a video card with DDR3 or 5.

Yes, as long as the video card matches the slot AGP,PCI, PCI Express, ect. then a motherboard running DDR can run a video card with any kind of graphics memory
If you will post the card and the motherboard we can tell for sure.

You will have to reset the Spread Spectrum Annulment mode to bypass on the interdendant modulation bus, but other than that you will fine. :) 
Seriously though, no problem. The memory your video card uses has no bearing at all on the type of system memory you have.

Ok, Your talking over my head here, but I think what your saying is to disable the onboard video before installing a card ???
Is this right ??
