Default Video Card Question

Since I am building an AMD system using DDR memory, Do I have to choose a video card that also has DDR memory or can I use any PCIE video card I want???

dont mean to hijack the thread but is there a big difference between a 256 mb Vid Card and a 512 MB Vid card? Will proformance be that much better?

if you want 512MB you want a card that can handle it, and the only cards that take advantage of 512 is the 7800GTX and X1800XT
