Because, drivers and the system lie. It doesn't tell you that 960 MB of the 1024 MB VRAM stated is actually using the system RAM.

With some Bios setups you can allocate more memory (system Ram) to be available to your graphics card. It's not fast it just allows your Ram to be hoovered up by the card for texturing, nothing else. I'ts not worth the loos of your Ram to the system. I believe a new card would be the optimum solution.

Given that the video is an onboard intel chip then for gaming yes, definitely go get an nvidia 265 card for something fast and cheap

But likely the real problem is that the drive for Windows 7 for that chip set (at least the one you have installed now) is not as good as the one you had installed for XP.

You can go to intel's website and look for a newer Windows 7 driver, that may fix it. But in the end, even if it does, that graphics chip is not going to be "good" for gaming anyway :/

Adam it is likely there on the other side of the PSU. Wouldn't be the first Dell I've seen where the PSU is mounted so that you have to remove it to find the label.
