Recently I just got bored of playing the same old games that my pc can run and I want to upgrade my graphics card but I have a DDR4 motherboard . i searched for DDR4 graphics cards but none of those were really my liking and i dont really want to change my motherboard cuz that would make my life a hell and my wallet hurt. so my question is if i can use a GDDR5 on a DDR4 motherboard and if these 16GB DDR4 of RAM will also work with it
 
GPU has norhing to do with motherboard and can work with any motherboard so just because your motherboard is ddr4 dose not mean an gddr5 gpu wont work on it because they have there own stuff in the card. But you really need to post your specs and what GPU you wanna upgrade so people can advice you more

RAM on the motherboard, and RAM on a graphics card are completely independent. You could have DDR2 on the motherboard and HBM on the graphics card. It could still work.

Your case size and power supply are more crucial to a GPU upgrade than the type of RAM on your motherboard.
A typical DDR4 motherboard will support that graphics card.
List what your motherboard model, CPU, case, and power supply are for more definite help.
