If I understand the statement, you need a new dealer. It's nonsense.

The type of RAM used on a discrete graphics card has nothing to do with the type on the motherboard. You could safely pair a graphics card using GDDR5 memory with a motherboard that uses DDR2.

^+1 to what he said. Either the dealer does not know what he's talking about or he's trying to push a particular card over the counter.

So go ahead and pick the better card in terms of specs.

You can fit any video card, be it an AMD chip or an NVidia one (it doesn't matter), so long as it will physically fit the space available with the correct interface and ports/adapter to suit your monitor setup. Don't overlook the power requirements of the card - if it requires additional power connections then these will need connecting.

As regards the memory, it doesn't matter. The memory on the card is totally independant from that on the motherboard. For example, my motherboard takes DDR2 memory, whereas that on my graphics card is GDDR5.
