It may be shared memory. My 5570 on another Win 7 x64 PC has 1GB of GDDR3 natively but this can go up to 2800 if necessary - check dxdiag and this will tell you what you card can reallocate. The card info is here:

And what that number really means,

will only ever be used if the card's memory fills up.

I'd love to see a game that can fill up 1GB GDDR5 RAM, and then take another 1GB from the system.
