hi guys

I need a bit of help from those who know about these things please.

What is the difference between :-

256MB 8300GS and 512MB 8300GS versions.

Having been charged for 512 MB and only receiving 256MB.

Frankly I don't know about these things but I once /thought/ I was in the same sort of boat as you.

It turned out that the card in question had 128MB physical RAM on board, but could use up to a further 128MB from the machine's main RAM for enhanced graphics. A sort of virtual memory thing.

Could it be a similar situation with yours perchance?

I doubt you'd be able to spot the difference in performance between the 256 and 512 mb versions of an 8300GS.

But still demand a refund!
