Your motherboard memory and your graphics card memory can be different DDR types.
In fact, the graphics card won't use the the motherboard DDR memory even if both are the same type.
They don't and shouldn't interfere with each other.

The only situation where the memory is shared is if you are using onboard built-in graphics. In this case, you can set the memory allocation in BIOS for the onboard graphics.

However as a side note, AGP has been outdated for many years now. PCIe is now the standard.
Of course, you'll probably have to upgrade your entire computer to do that. Maybe you can keep the case.
