Yes - but it would be totally ironic, since the motherboard would be fine with DDR2, but the vidcard totally craves DDR3.
Your 'backwards' setup will give much less performance...

Thank you,

But the cost of a DDR3 Video card is too costly for my budget and I had a 4GHZ of DDR2 card from my older system, so I plan to use it for now.

Upgrading from a DDR2 to DDR3 motherboard and RAM shows little to no difference in real world applications and every day performance.

Going from a GPU with DDR2 VRAM to a GPU with DDR3 VRAM shows a huge difference in gaming.
