  1. Yes, you can use that video card with your mobo. The form of VRAM on a graphics card has nothing to do with the type of RAM used by the motherboard.

    GDDR5 and DDR3 are very different memory for different things. To answer your question though no you did not choose wrong. This will work perfectly together and your motherboard will not bottleneck your new GPU.
