  1. What graphics card do you have?
  2. The amount of vram on a dedicated video card is the true amount of video memory, your video really has. If the vram is 1GB, then your video card only has 1GB of vram. If you see extra, that is automatically allocated by the OS. Onboard graphics can assign the amount some system ram in the bios.
    For the game at 56MB is that how much has used out of the total 1695MB or it has used up 1695MB and it's only left with 56MB available?
  3. it says i only have 56 MB yet i have 1695 which makes no sense if the game is in full screen and is the only tas being performed where is the other memory going
