There is a lot more than just Video Memory to a GPU.

As far as that part of a game requirement goes, no it doesn't matter. More important than how much memory is on the card is what card it is. The models listed for the minimum specs are just that, the minimum card that the game will run on at low settings.

I think he is asking about the manufacturer of RAM on the video cards. No, it's not relevant in the least and is probably the same as the actual manufacturers of regular RAM........more than likely either Samsung or Micron.

That is correct. If the game requires at minimum "x" amount of graphics card memory, it doesn't matter if it's Nvidia or AMD. As a point of interest, most games will have a "Minimum" and "Recommended" list of hardware......I've always thought and told others that they should regard the "Recommended" list as the minimum requirements to play the game.
