Question about Computers & Internet
I wanted to play gta iv but on minimum graphics it takes 200 mb of video memory and i have 119 -,- maximum is 762. so i would like to get maximum
If you are using a laptop the video card probably uses what is called shared memory for the Graphics Processor. Which means it pulls RAM from the system and uses for processing graphics. Typically the computer controls how much RAM to dedicate to the Graphics Processor. More RAM is always good. I would check in my BIOS. Sometimes they put RAM allotment for the GPU there. If they advertised that you can get a total of 762MB out of your GPU then it wouldn't surprise me. Just remember the more you dedicate to your GPU the less you have for your system.

SOURCE: video card....
Most cheaper laptops do not include a full-blown graphics board with expensive dedicated graphics memory. Instead, system memory is shared between the CPU and the graphics subsystem.
How much memory actually is reserved for graphics purposes depends on the software you are running. The frame buffer (the memory used to store the pixels on your desktop) is only part of it - games, for example use a lot of memory to store textures and geometry data.
The smallest memory size your system must reserve for CPU/Graphics sharing.
The largest chunk your system can configure for sharing.
Your laptop lacks the CPU and graphics power to run high demand games anyway, so 128 MB of shared memory should be sufficient. You can configure this to 256 or 512 MB in the BIOS configuration menu, but I doubt it will make any noticeable difference for you.
