Can AGP card with DDR2 ram be installed in mb with DDR1 ram

Posted: March 07, 2012
I am having pc with intel 845 chipset with DDR 1 SDRAM having 4 PCI ( not PCi Express ) and 1 AGP slot. I am having Microsoft Vista with service pack 2 which does not support this motherboard. I have to install the driver manually. Automatic Update has updated Directx to DirectX 11 and I can not boot normally. So, I need a grahics card with which DirectX 11 will work correctly. I want cheapest card as I am not gaming but to software development and do not need fancy stuff.
My question is can I install AGP card or PCI VGA card with DDR2 or DDR3 ram in my PC with DDR - ! SDRAm ?
Also, please guide me which will be the cheapest graphics card which will work with DirectX 11 or at least with DirectX 10 which is default for Vista ?

The RAM in the GPU doesn't matter because it is handled by the GPU.
Currently many highend GPUs have DDR5 in them and they work perfectly with systems that have DDR2 and DDR3 RAM.

If you can find an AGP GPU that supports DirectX 11 you can use it.
