Can I Use A DDR2 Video Card On A DDR3 System

Asus P5kpl-vm desktop board
December 8, 2010 at 10:03:51
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate x64, C2D2.8GHZ/4GB
I am planning to build a new computer and was wondering can I use a DDR2 Video Card With A DDR3 System

The Specs Will Be:
Corei3 540 (3.06Ghz)
Kingston 2GB DDR3 1333Mhz
Motherboard: INTEL DH55PJ or INTEL DH55HC
Hard Drive: Western Digital 320GB SATA
A Good PowerSupply to keep system cool and safe and which has enough capacity to run the hardware

And The Graphics Card will be a nvidia9500GT DDR2- I am not into gaming. Only Videos.
Leaving the power supply can I use the 9500GT DDR2 with the rest of the system. I mean is it compatile with the motherboard and everything.

What's the rush?

The memory on the video card has absolutely nothing to do with the memory used by the system. I suggest you get something else though, the 9500GT is old news. How about a GT 220 instead?

BTW, choose a different motherboard. Get a board based on an Intel chipset but NOT made by Intel. Look at boards from Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, etc. And why such a small hard drive? Also, why 2GB DDR3-1333 when you can get 4GB DDR3-1600 for just $35?

Video cards are either PCI, PCI EXPRESS, or some other wierd connector that I can't pronounce the name of. DDR2/3 are types of RAM for the computer.
