Windows 7: Graphic Card Memory

04 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
 
 
Graphic Card Memory

I have a new card in route to me. It has 512 MB. The one I have now has 64 MB. Do I have to change any settings to get the new card to use that much memory or is the memory part of the card? Thanks,

Part of the card. No special settings needed. Physically install card correctly following instructions that come with it. Then install latest driver from Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM once Windows is loaded. Then you will be happy. Done.

If the card is an NVidia one, get the driver from http://www.nvidia.com

The memory is just a part of the card no setting needed.
Just uninstall the old drivers on the old card before shutting down the machine and installing the new card this will save you from having problems as for any settings just install the new videocard drivers and you should be good.

If the card is an NVidia one, get the driver from Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies

I thought I would add that you ordered one hell of an upgrade...

Did you also make sure that your Power Unit and MOBO can handle it?
