I have intel d975xbx2 extreme mb w/ddr2 memory. I am upgrading my processor and my pci e x 16 video card . Does types of memory have to match ?

Do motherboard memory and video board memory have to be ddr2 ?

I do not believe so. The GPU's memory is independent from the rest of the system's memory. So you should be fine.

Video and system memory types are independent. At the moment, it is the GDDR5 and DDR3. I would suggest upgrading your motherboard, along with everything else. DDR2 is very old.
