Hi:

 

The GDDR5 memory is onboard the graphics adapter, and that only concerns the memory speed the GPU runs at.

 

It will have no effect on the DDR3 system memory.

 

The card should work fine. 

 

It is pretty powerful for the 240W power supply your PC has, but hopefully it will not be an issue.

 

The card has a max of a 60W power draw.
