Video ram?

Hey guys,

Just build a new computer so i could play BF3 when it comes out and a few other games.

My Specs are.

CPU - AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor 3.2 GZH
RAM - 8GB 1600
Windows - Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium
Video Card - Radeon 6950 - 2 GB.

But my question is, on DX DIAG its only showing video memory as

Approx Total Memory - 1773.

Now surely thats got to be wrong? if my GCARD is 2G?

Or am i missing somthing here?

what does windows report it at? It will show you on the windows experience index page.
windows reports 4096MB for my 1GB 5850, which I am guessing is using some of my system ram for that number.

Video player that divides video into smaller scenes for preview?
Hi there. I'm looking for a video player that can divide videos into smaller scenes (like every 15 or 30 sec) so that they serve as previews and lets you seek to the part you want. Note that it doesn't really split the video; it just does it on the spot for previewing purposes. This technique was...
