    Finding how much memory my graphics card has

    Hello, I've been looking around for ages on this subject, but nothing seems to be working. I've tried Sysinfo, but all that told me was what kind of card it is, and even with that info I can't find any information on it elsewhere. can anyone help? it's called "intel corporation mobile gm965 gl960 integrated graphics controller," by the way.

    thanks!

    It's not a dedicated card, it's an intel intergrated GPU. It lacks it's on video memory, instead shareing your main system ram.

    Well usually it's limited to 64/128/256 MB for graphics. How much it takes up will be setting in your bios. May I ask what is asking for how much video ram you have?

    Some intel GPU's allocate system RAM for video use dynamically (as needed), so it may not be a set number.
