video cards calculate the processes for what needs to be displyed on your screen.

RAM stored info for the CPU so it can acess it quickly.

Video cards DRAW the images on your monitor and a 3d card has a processor which has math functions built in to very quickly draw triangles and octagones and do texturing. Think of ram as a large cache buffer which stores needed data and instructions. The more ram the more quick storage.
