    Unless I`ve missed it, I can`t see where it says onboard anything on the page you linked. I did check on the specifications tab.

    Maybe you can copy and paste the part you`re referring to.

    Regards Howard :)

    Memory Size Support up to 512MB (128MB onboard).

    I take that to mean it actually has 128MB of memory built in, but it supports upto 512MB of memory. Whether that means the rest of the ram is can use is your system ram, I don`t know.

    I must admit, I`m slightly puzzled too.

    Thanks for that 9Nails, very useful. So, I was kind of right in my assumption. ;)
