    Default problems with my video card

    i just upgraded a few components like last month ram and video card.

    wat i dont understand is how much video memory i have

    i bought an nvidia 8400 gs ( it was decent prize and its for the old ass desktop)

    the specs i find on the internet say that it has 256 video memory but when i start up the desktop it says 512 mb

    also when i look for it on display properties it also points out that i have 512 mb.


    sho how much memory do i really have?

    here are specs




    see??

    It's 512, that program doesn't look really good.

    Start -> run -> msinfo32 (or msinfo64 if applicable) -> Components -> Display -> adapter RAM

    it only has 256mb, the other 256mb comes from a feature called NVIDIA TurboCache.

    The revolutionary TurboCache technology utilizes the additional bandwidth of the PCI Express graphics bus to reach higher levels of graphics performance than traditional video memory solutions, delivering the performance and features you expect from NVIDIA graphics hardware. By allowing the graphics processing unit (GPU) to share the capacity and bandwidth of dedicated video memory and dynamically available system memory, TurboCache turbocharges performance and provides larger total graphics memory."

    it just "steals" 256mb of your onboard ram.
