In this case the DDR2 is the system memory, the DDR3 is graphic memory (GDDR3), they are separate and compatible.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi Nelson

The graphics card will be fine with the new PC so long as it has a PCI-E slot to fit the graphics card into.
