Take a look at this guys.It's real confusing me.

(IMG:http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l156/Zarathustra_XIII/UNKNOWN.jpg)

Before when I wuz Windows XP,it tells 512MB.But once I upgrade to Vista,the fact went abuse.So,is this "fact" is something that you all call "error" or is it REALLY as it is shown?

I'm confused.So I use another PC Information software...but still says the same.It's only that less 200Mb,1024MB.

I'd quickly call it an error.. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Look up on the BIOS instead - how much RAM is allocated for the graphics adapter? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

It's not wrong. It's sharing your system memory.

756 (shared) + 512 (video card) = 1275 (roughly)

He's right, Vista introduces Virtual Memory for Video cards..though If I recall, it only uses actual RAM instead of a HDD.

I thought that was odd the first time I saw it too, but then I remembered hearing about that. This is one of those good features of Vista (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Oh,VRAM sharing.I've just asked the PC vendor about this.

But I just don't get it.What's the benefit by doing that?Is it my performance will boost or something?

I assume it will give a boost for VRAM-hungry games, and it's not as bad to get a card with a limited amount of VRAM (like my 8600 GTS, which has only 256MB). I haven't looked into it for sure, though.
