  1. I'm building my second computer. My question.. My motherboard uses DDR2 do I need a video card that also uses DDR2?

    Welcome to Techspot.

    The system ram and the GPU ram do not need to be the same. I.e., you CAN use a GPU with DDR3 (for example) on a computer using DDR2 system memory without problem. The two are not related.

    ditto. Also read the FAQs about memory upgrading in case you ever add memory to your mobo.
