Yes it will. You can use any kind of VRAM and DRAM combined. It will not make a difference in performance. Heck, you could use DDR DRAM and GDDR5 RAM together! :)

Because the video card has its own dedicated Video RAM, which is DDR3, but your machine uses DDR2 RAM that is plugged into your motherboard.
