  1. No, you will be just fine.
    Memory RAM are completely different from Memory Graphic card... :)

    It's okay if you want to use HD4850, just remember that card need a 6pin power connector from PSU, so 450W PSU or more should handle that card...
  2. Your motherboard, or any other motherboard in the world which has a PCI-E slot, will support ALL types of PCI-E GDDR X cards.

    GDDR is completely different to DDR.

    GDDR is the memory on the graphics card, which has no effect on the motherboard
    DDR is motherboard Memory. This does have an effect on the motherboard. Meaning DDR wont fit into DDR2, or DDR3 into DDR etc..

    Hope this helps :)
