  1. umm yes?
    the GDDR5 memory is dedicated memory to the Graphics card and works a bit different than system RAM
    any modern GPU uses GDDR5/GDDR5x memory while any modern CPU/MoBo uses DDR4 RAM

    so I guess, you're aiming at an i7-6700k with some Asus Z170 board + a GTX1070
    that will work perfrectly-

    the motherboard is an Asus B150M Pro Gaming
    and the video card is a MSI GTX1070 Armor
    and yes, the processor is a 6700K
    now thinking at it , should I change the it from a MSI to an Asus , because it might be a problem with the motherboard being asus and the video card a MSI ?

    lol no. asus as msi use industry standards. frankly, everybody uses industry standards.
    the only thing I don't get is going for a 6700k - that's sole purpose over the 6700 is overclocking as benchmarks show basically no difference in gaming between those two - but pairing it with a B150 board. If you haven't bought the parts already, I suggest either "downgrading" the CPU to a 6700 (non k) or upgrading to a Z170 board

    whether it's MSI, Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock -- the PCIe standard is the same for everyone
