Hi everyone

So u have an ATI Radeon HD 5670 video card 1gb ddr5 video card, but when i go to dxdiag and check my approx total memory for my video it only shows 712mb, i ran this card in my other comp, when it had windows 7 it read 2.8gb video memory with 4gb ram.

I also ran this card in the same computer but with windows XP and it read 1.3gb ram memory with 4gb ram

Now im running windows 7 with 8gb ram in a newer pc, and total approx memory is 712mb, why is it lower than before?

Right click on desktop > pick Screen Resolution > click on Advanced Settings > go to tab called Adapter check there, total, dedicated, shared
but its not like it matters anyway 1GB video card still going to be that,
If you not sure what card you got, simply run GPUz program that will tell you for sure
