Quote:
Display adapter type ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 (Prerelease - WDDM 1.1) Total available graphics memory 1278 MB
Dedicated graphics memory 512 MB
Dedicated system memory 0 MB
Shared system memory 766 MB

I have an issue were its dedicating 766mb to my Graphics card. My Graphics card already has a good amount of Memory, and I am having Issues, when I play games that I get to 95% memory usage. So it starts using page file = Slow comp!

Can any one help?
