Video Card Memory - Do you really use 256 MB?

  BigMoFoT 16:30 26 Apr 2004

As my title suggests exactly how much video card memory is actually used. I have a GFX 5700 256 MB version but will the card or any game really utilise the full amount?

Yes it's there for a purpose they would not put 256 in if less would do. Especially in new games, as Memory is a lot faster to access than Hard Drives and CD-ROM's
