So, I was updating my system specs for the battle net opt in thing. I did the test and I noticed windows 7 is allocating over a gig of extra video memory to my graphics card if need be? I'm not to sure on this process, I've googled quite a few search phrases regarding it and couldn't pin point accurate information on it. On top of that google is NOT the proper diagnosis for everything and does not solve your problem as talking to an actual person would in some cases. Anyways is there anyway to restrict windows from allowing any extra memory to the graphics card? My GTX260 has enough video memory for the resolution I'm running at and if it is taking any extra memory that isn't good.
