Will a DDR3 Graphics Card work on my DDR2 Motherboard? Help?

This is my motherboard:
MSI (Micro Star) MS-7592 (G41M4-F) Motherboard

here is the specs for the motherboard:
http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid...

I want to know whether i can use a DDR3 Graphics card on my DDR2 motherboard and if its certain to work. Please provide detail and whether it'll be compatible.
If not could you give me links for DDR2 graphic cards which consist of VGA/DVI-I/HDMI

Secondly, how would i use the graphics card to connect my PC to my TV to use Dual Monitor Display, do i need to change settings on the PC or do i just need the wires.

Also, as it's a DDR2 Motherboard i want to upgrade my Memory (RAM) from 1GB to 4GB, please can you provide me links for the DDR2 - 240 PIN RAM as well as i cannot find it?

Please answer in detail and explain to me properly, thanks

would this be compatible with my motherboard aswel?

yes it will work just fine. The GPU's memory is independent from the rest of the system's memory.

no, it cant, yes it will run but your board is having now no longer life span bec. the card you use is more advance than your motherboard and it cant handle it for a longer time you use it

You can use any DDR version video card on any DDR version motherboard.

But if you are asking if you can uninstall the vram from your GPU and install it on the motherboard, then the answer is NO!

I'm not sure what you're getting at there. The HD 5450 can easily run on an older chipset wtih PCIe 1.1 or above. If the PCIe is 1.0, then you'll need to worry. The G41 chipset has a 1.1 slot, which is not going to be a problem.
