    Okay so my computer has shared video memory (soo stupid) but i never play games on so i was thinking if i changed Video memory to 32 megs rather than it being 64 megs and taking away 64 megs from my ram (512-64=448) will it affect my computers performance in terms of applications running , rember i dont play games , i do alot of photoshop , flash , and programming (c, c+ , vb.net etc ) , so will it effect my computers performance?

    see, I'm stingy about my system memory/resources/etc.
    I'd throw an old PCI gfx card in it at least, but that's just me

    64MB Radeon 7000 rawx!!!!!
