Hard to say based only on this information as the 8400gs came in
256
512
and 1024 models.
So both are actually possible.

Dxdiag I know is not always right my old 8800gt nvidia card would often read as having over 2gigs when it only had 512meg.
Overclocking can also confuse things.
Based on the information at hand I can't really say which is right for sure though, they are both possible.

I can't say for certain, if you knew the exact model number and manufacturer of the card you have you could simply google that.
guessing , based on what little you've said I would kind of lean to it being the 256.
The only way to really know is to get the info off the card itself though.
