i looking to buy a 6600gt geforce card, and it says that the memory type is DDR3, does that mean my ram???? or thats what the card has? e.g. do i need ddr3 to run this card? or can i just use regular ddr?

No, the DDR3 specification is refering to the type of memory that the card has, not the RAM on your machine. The type of RAM on your machine makes no difference.

Yeah ddr3 is basically just saying the card has the statis ddr3 ram, this is the best ram to get and the reason you pay more for gfx cards with it. 6600GTs though are in my opinion pretty bad value for money when compared to x800s which are the same price or cheaper and are much more powerful.
