    Could you provide the details of your graphics card?

    It's obviously integrated graphics.
    No you can't, you need to buy a graphics card. You can't really play games on your current VGA anyway.

    I'm curious what specific model is this? I did some quick googling and didn't find the card.

    that card isn't worth the money it cost for extra ram waste of time imo.

    wel we arent looking for the best we only want to test the limits of this card like i wrote before its for a project like in experiment
  13. If that is the memory that windows assigns to the card then no it can't be changed unless you remove some of your system ram.Windows wont touch it if it doesn't need it.
    Mine also said about 4 gb's of video ram when i had 8gb's of system ram and now that i only have 4gb's it say that i only have 2,8gb's available for my video.
    That will go up tomorrow when i put another 8 gb in.
    Is this what you meant?

    ya sort of i was only looking for a way to boost it so thanks for the repley
    we have 6 gb of ram so its realy weird we have to spend over 2.1Gig on video
    and it was weird in a way cause its a dedicated video card

    we have done a full system check on de card and we have found a error that we made when modding it
    we made a extra slot so it would take in 2slots because of the extra memory the problem was we couldent acces that memory cause there was problem reading it we fixt it and now we have the full 4.1gig of memory and run add 850 Ghz add a temp of 75°C (overclock)

    we have tryed to run add 860Ghz but then it went over 95°C so we are trying to fixs that now
    But its a huge improvement over 525 Ghz Standard on a normal 440GT

    how much did we spend on this project over 700 euro so is it worth it ??
    No your better of buying a better card cheaper XD

    it was a fun project
    thanks for the help you Guys

    Well, I'm glad you did it. The world needs people to play with things and make them do things they weren't originally designed to do.

    Hell, people spend money upgrading older systems all the time when in reality they could get a much better system with cheaper, newer parts.

    Also, I admit my first post was actually questioning your card. As in, maybe you somehow got ahold of a MX440 (basically a GF2 from the old days) or something.
