Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.

Will a DDR3 graphic card work as it should work on a DDR2 motherboard or ram


Add more RAM
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the
Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibilitybefore making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.
computer users often get confused when assembling or upgrading their first computer. While the most common error is made when distinguishing system memory, RAM, from hard drive space, gaming computers have an extra wrinkle to worry about.

Graphics cards use memory separately from the system memory mounted on the motherboard. Some graphics cards use the more typical DDR standard, though it's permanently attached to the graphics card circuitboard, while others use the new GDDR standard.

For the most part, the internals of the graphics card aren't relevant to the rest of the computer it's all about the connection slot.What Is DDR Memory?


DDR, or "Double Data Rate," is the standardized random access memory format for most desktop and laptop computers.
DDR RAM comes in different generational standards: DDR, DDR2, DDR3 and the newer DDR4.

RAM chips, known as DIMMs, come in only one format, as do the DIMM slots on motherboards, so a DDR3-compatible motherboard memory slot can accept only DDR3 RAM DIMMs RAM that uses an earlier or later standard is incompatible.
GDDR Memory and Graphics Cards


Modern graphics cards use a modified memory standard called GDDR, short for Graphics Double Data Rate. While similar, GDDR and DDR memory is not the same:

Most importantly, GDDR memory is integrated into the graphics card and cannot be removed. Some older graphics cards use DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory, but this is also integrated into the card.

Graphics cards of varying power come with different kinds of RAM as of the date of publication, most cards feature GDDR4 or GDDR5 memory

Graphics Card Motherboard Connections
Discrete desktop graphics cards are mounted inside a computer case and plugged directly into the motherboard.

Three standard connections are used for graphics cards: PCI-Express (the most common and powerful), PCI and AGP.

It is this connection that determines how much data can be shared between the graphics card and the other system components, such as the CPU, the system RAM and the hard drive.

The expansion slot standard is the primary function for determining whether or not a graphics card is compatible with any given computer:

If your motherboard has a PCI-E slot, it's compatible, if not ideally so, with all PCI-E graphics cards.
Graphics Card Memory and System Memory Compatability

Memory is an important part of game performance, but graphics memory and system memory are two different things.

For better performance, it's best to have as much graphics memory AND system memory as possible, but the different standards used by the graphics card and the motherboard are largely irrelevant.

As long as the graphics card uses the correct expansion slot standard, it will work with the corresponding motherboard, regardless of its DDR version.

Do different ddr rams conflict between mother board and video card


Yes. As long as the system meets all requirements to support the card. You MB RAM is independent of the video RAM.

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM, and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.

You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2

And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max

Is DDR2 Compactible with gigabyte 81845ge-rz motherboard?


No. If the current RAM is DDR, then DDR2 will not work.
The slots are slightly different, and the DDR2 won't even fit into a DDR slot.

Upgrade from a 64MB nVIVIA GeForce4 Ti4200 graphics card.


This card is really good for an AGP card. It had 512 mb of DDR2 memory.If you are using Photoshop You need to look at upgrading to the max amount you can get into you machine.Photoshop is built to use as much memory as you will allow. I think you can go to 3 gigabyte of standard DDR NOT DDR2. Also, XP has Service Pack 3 now so download that from Microsoft's site. Hope this helps.

RAM compatability


The clock speed on the 5300 is higher however when installed with a 3200 the 5300 will "clock down" to the 3200 speed.  They are both compatible in this situation.

Upgrading VIDEO CARD


If your motherboard's graphics slot is AGP and your graphics card is AGP then it should be fine if your motherboard is PCI-E and graphics is PCI-E it also is fine make sure your motherboard and graphics are compatible.
