well compatability depends on your motherboard what do you have?

PCI? PCI-Express? AGP? you can not just buy a card and expect it to fit it has to match your motherboard if your not sure use this program to see what you have

DDR is the type of RAM a card has DDR2 is faster than DDR and DDR3 is faster than DDR2 so like this

DDR3--->DDR2--->DDR
fastest------------slowest

DDR3 or GDDR3 is the best on the market as far as grahics cards go they are able to write and read really fast

ATI are better than Nvidea in my opinion (in which many other share) they are the leaders as far as cards go

post back with your motherboard specs and we will help you further

Thats an opinion ATI is good and i prefer them but they arent always the best buy, Nvidia have the middle market covered quite well with the 7600.
