  1. I'm very confused as to what an Nvidia 8800GTX (DDR3) card could actually go in. The nvidia nforce board looks great but it says its only compatible up to DDR2, but this is in the PCIE slot, does anyone have any idea?

    That's regarding your system memory. Video memory is seperate and can be different. My system ram is DDR2 and video card GDDR3.

    your nVidia card is using GDDR3.
    your computer memory using DDR2

    so it's different. nothing to worry about... :)
