I have a asus pentium 4, socket 478, intel 845, sdram,agp 4x, 2 gig processor mother board.

it says sd ram, does that mean my 2 gig processor/mother board wont support ddr ram?

and also, i want to upgrade my geforce 2 mx 400 vid card but almost all the vid cards above that are ddr ram. if my mother board doesnt support ddr ram, can i still use a ddr ram video card (will it just clock at lower speeds), or do i have to find a sd ram(pc 133) video card?

yes that motherboard will support DDR RAM
and yes it will support a graphics card with DDR (a motherboard DOES NOT need to support DDR ram to run a DDR graphics card)

That board will not support DDRam if it's concieved to use SDRam. The i845 chipset was meant for SDRam only. The DDRam version was the i845-D & versions that came afterwards ( i845E, etc ).

Steg's right about the VGA card, you can have a DDR graphics card on an SDRam based box, but that board indeed, won't support DDR :]
