I am having trouble figureing out exactly what VRAM is I checked techdictionary and got this
The problem that I am having is silent hill 3, when I start it is gives error this game requires atlease 32mb of vram. I know that I need an upgrade from my nvadia geforce 4 MX 440 64MB ddr (agp 4X) card and thought this a fine excuse. The thing that I am noticing in looking for a new card is that Vram is not something mentioned on specs, leading to beleive that this is not a new technology, so my card should have this. In the release notes the min is a geforce 3 at 32 MB vram.Video Random Access Memory. A kind of high-speed memory used for the computer's screen display. VRAM must be fast to keep up with the speed at which the screen is scanned. The VRAM in a PC is on a display adapter card. It uses dual-ported (two separate data ports) memory allowing simultaneous reads and writes and is faster than dynamic RAM . One port is dedicated to the CRT and refreshes and updates the image. The second port is for the CPU or graphics controller and changes the image data in memory.
I guess what I am asking is should my card be capable of this, and if not what spec category I am looking at for the Vram business?
If my card is capable what should I do, I guess I waill try and update my drivers and see if that helps, I have not in a while. I am using 22.214.171.124 and direct X 9b i am pretty sure.
I wanna play this game so bad I am kinda reluctant to upgrade as I have never had any problems with this card at all.
