Will gddr5 graphics cards work on a ddr3 motherboard?

Hello I'm upgrading my graphics card and was wondering if a gddr5 graphics card would work on a ddr3 motherboard.

My motherboard is a Gigabyte B150M-D3H DDR3

I'm not looking at a specific graphics card.

Last time i used a ddr3 graphics card on a ddr2 motherboard it didn't work so i'm not sure if it will work with a gddr5 graphics card on a ddr3 motherboard

Thank you

    Memory type used in GPU (most GPU use DDR5 now) has no effect whatsoever on memory type used on motherboard. They're just not going to 'meet' at any point. So yes, any new graphic card will work fine on your motherboard.
  2. yes! it will, Gpu memory is different from ram memory

    GPU memory has nothing to do with motherboard memory.

    A GPU could have DDR3, GDDR5, it doesn't matter it will work on any motherboard that supports PCIe which his does.
