Specs: Windows 7, AMD Athlon II X2 245 Processor 2.90 GHz
I would like to upgrade my video card, so that my graphics are better for StarCraft 2. I would also like to know more about ddr, and if my motherboard can support any different ddrs like ddr5.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3
Ram: ddr2 4GB

You don't say which revision of motherboard you have, but here is the link for revision 2.1 (2.0 & 1.0 are also listed on this page): http://www.gigabyte.us/products/pro... .

The specs will tell you the slots available for video cards, e.g., PCI Express version 2.0. That will also tell you which DDR types your motherboard will accept. Also note the following note they have on their spec sheet: "please refer "Memory Support List" for detail memory support information.".

As for more information about DDR types, the higher the number the faster the RAM module is, the greater your bandwidth is. But a quick look over the spec sheet tells me you may be limited in your available options.

Let me know how you fare.

System memory has nothing to do with Video Card memory, as long as u have PCI express x16 slot u can fit any PCIe v-card and it will work (not entirely true because there are different version of PCIe and some of them backward compatibility is zero) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pci_ex...

Your motherboard support DDR2 DIMM only up-to 1333Mhz (overclocked, depends on board revision) with 1.8 voltage. The following explain DDR, DDR2, DDR3 used in computers like desktop and laptop and not DDR used in smartphones or tablets.

I recommend HD 7750 (max tdp 55W), even weak units run it well.

Athlon II X2 245 isn't good gaming chip but u can still overclock it to improve games performance.
