I asked a tech to build a pc for me. He said he bought a 1gb mb but im not sure coz I dont know anything about it. The Model is NVIDIA GeFOrce 210.
I tried to figure it out myself and it says:
TOTAL GRAPHICS MEMORY -1279 MB
DEDICATED VIDEO MEMORY -512 MB
SHARED VIDEO MEMORY -0 MB
SHARED SYSTEM MEMORY -767 MB

i JUST WANNA KNOW IF HE IS JUST FOOLING ME OR HE IS TELLING THE TRUTH. AND I cant open the cpu co i might dammaged something in it.
Please help me clear up my mind.
Thank you very much.

I've seen this card before and it's a nice value card to boost your Windows Aero but not much else. Your gamer types must not buy this one.
