Is a DDR2 Video Card compatible with a motherboard that requires DDR3 RAM?
I have an ATI RADEON HD3450 VidCard and a MSI790GX-G65 motherboard.
The video card is DDR2, and the motherboard needs DDR3. Will the video card work?

yes its compatibe. ram that is on the video card has no relation to the ram on the motherboard so rest easy.

Yep, though the 3450 won't add a ton over the 790GX's integrated, so perhaps you could get away without even using a card. Worth a try at least. What do you plan on doing with the system?

Yeah, that isn't a gaming card FYI and for other purposes you should really see if the onboard video makes you happy before bothering with a discrete card.
