Well i might get a new graphics card right... But my dad wants to know if it holds any memory or not... I am not a computer wiz so bare with me here... Were do you find the information to see what is going on with the card already in my tower? %-6
If by "holding" memory you mean being able to upgrade it / put more on you can't. Video cards have a fixed amount of very fast memory that can never be swapped. Typical higher-end cards have 512mb of memory. If you have a card in mind for DoD:S post it here and I should be able to help you out more.
buying a 512mb video card is usualy youre best bet because when loading a game with a 256mg video card it uses all the memory and then it uses computer memory.. where as in a 512 mb when loading a game theres no need to use computer memory... or so i heard from an ati sales person
Yeah, Christian, they were just trying to get you to spend more money. A 256MB Video card is probably as much as you will need for DoD:S. But also, you must take into account that the VideoRam really isn't what a videocard is all about, yes having dedicated VideoRAM is a good thing, but you really want to look at the GPU (Graphics Prossessing Unit) for example the Videocard I am running right now, An Nvidia GeForce4 Ti 4600 with 128MB of RAM, is not the same as a umm... well a better one with the same amount of RAM, I guess what I am trying to say here, is Videocards try and sell you on the amount of VideoRAM they have, but one with more RAM is not nessicarily better than one with a better GPU, but in your case, A card with about 256MB of RAM is probably fine. just for Perspective, My computer has 512 MB of RAM and I am running a 4 year old Card with 128MB of VideoRAM and I am playing DoD:S fine. so really what it comes down to is how much you want to spend. BTW, this post is just about compleatly unreadable and I don't blame you if you haven't gotten this far. and if you have, then Bravo, now forget everything I just told you.
