Hi Quandary121,

My computer has 2048 or 2 GB of RAM and 256 MB of dedicated memory on an AGP card. I wanted to buy a cheap graphics card & 128 & 256 cost almost the same on NewEgg.com.

Graphics Card

I have a Sony that I put a 256 AGP card in, and 2 Mb of memory.Games want to lock up,so I thought I would move up to a 512.
I found out I only have a 200 watt power supply and it did not have the power to run the bigger 512 card. I was informed I couldn't go any higher on the power because Sony will not let me. So when people say you can run this or that kind of video card, don't forget to tell them to read the side of the box to see how much power they need, and know how much you have in your computer.

I bought my AMD Dual Core Gateway back in March 06 and had an Nvidia Geforce 6600 with 256mb PCI-E16x put in and ran FEAR pretty well, Ran a whole lot better than the integrated video I can till you that. A friend of mine gotten FEAR when he saw how Badd A$$ the game was, and it ran $hitty as hell cause he don't have an Video Card that support it. Since my video card is outdated, it still could run pretty must anything you can throw at it.. GUYS!! it really does make a whole lot difference, invest in a good Video Card. If money is an issue, I prefer getting an Nvidia Geforce 7900gtx. Pretty sure the price went down.

running a geforce 8500gt 512mb,plus on board memory,nvidia sli,3d interface,direct 10,not running the dual-link 512 does the job just fine,awesome performance,i would not run anything less, more would be better!!!If you are running high resolution,games,and want true to life 3D characters and environments this card works great at a resonable price.Have a dual core base with a fast processor makes the whole thing run like a dream!!!

Gainward Nvidia Geforce 8800GT Bliss 'Golden Sample' 512mb.

Good looking card, cools good, and is sufficient for gaming on a 24" screen.

At the time I bought it (january Silly ) there wasn't any card that performed significantly better with 1GB.

How much video memory?
by geofbrewer / April 19, 2008 9:58 AM PDT

It depends upon the system. I have an older Compaq Presario that came with a GeForce2 MX video adapter with 32 MB. I replaced it for a short time with a better one that had 128 MB. Don't remember the brand. It was defective. Went back to the old one. Don't do much gaming. I have a Dell castoff with a new motherboard and a 5600 video adapter, 256 MB. Got that for Halo. I have an Acer 3620 with 64 MB.

Changing graphics cards on a laptop takes some heroic doing, not the easy drop-in-the-case it is for desktops. They have to be engineered to fit/work in the tiny space afforded by laptops.

it works nicely for games, and it seems fair compared to 2gb for my system RAM. What amazes me is that some very high end workstations cards have 2GB video memory Shocked !! I mean WOW. I remember the days when my system's memory was 128MB and my video card had 8MB...
