Default Help Plzz Upgrading PC

I have a few questions about upgrading a PC.

1. If I have DDR system memory, will the DDR2 ram on a video card mix with it or work properly?
2. Will this video card work on my PC? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...N82E16814102640
This is my motherboard link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...cname=c00496280

3. If this all works fine, what kind of power supply would i need?

Any replies are great thxx

First of all, your links both go nowhere, second, memory on the vid card has nothing with memory on your mobo, it'll work fine. What you need to know is what vid card interface your mobo supports.

SAPPHIRE Radeon X1300PRO 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card is the video card, my mobo is ASUS A8AE-LE. The only thing i can find about the video graphics is that it is integrated.

as long as your motherboard has a PCI-e slot that card will work fine, it won't last very long for newer games, but it's much better than integrated. for sure.

When you plug a PCI graphics card in, BIOS will automatically disregard the integrated graphics. Regarding your first question, I have a 7900 graphics card and it has DDR3 memory, I have been playing system taxing games ever since I installed it so there is no problem. The graphics card memory is very different to the system memory.
