i read on internet that 32 bit OS limit the Ram ...
I think the limit is 3GB
So my total ram is 4gb (my pc ram (2gb) + my graphics card ram (2gb) )
My question is "Does my graphic card only use 1gb ram?"

If it's a 2gb card, it's taking 2gb. You can right click computer and go to properties. It'll tell you how much is usable which will be 2gb if the gpu is using 2gb. The limit is 4gb for 32bit.

The 4gb limit is ram + vram total. Yes it can limit the gpu ram.

The limit of accessible random access memory by a 32 bit operating system is 3.2 gig.
I am not certain if it applies to graphics card Vram; tho it would be logical, but it is not really an issue in either case for older systems. Windows 7 goes like a racing car on 3 gig compared to 2, and after that it makes a small difference.

Go to computer properties and it'll tell you the usable. The limit is not 3.2.

Your question leads me to believe you think the gpu ram and System random access memory have to be added together; they do not.They are seperate systems, and the worst case scenario is that widows 32 bit is limited to 3.2 gig ram and 3.2 gig Vram.
I have never heard of a situation where Vram has been limited by 32 bit, but its of no matter.
Buy the graphics card you need, the one you have has a rubbish engine.
And to K1114. please post some evidence on this forum to prove you can actually get more than 3.2 gig of ram being used by any windows 32bit system. Windows reporting tools are generic cross 32/64 bit and do not take into account o/s limitation. They just tell you the physical attributes of the system.

Also ignore the ram on a video card; you want a good engine, not a load of memory strapped to a moped.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop...(v=vs.85).aspx Limit is 4gb, I'll post my old core 2 duo rig which is 32 bit and has 4gb ram but I'd need to change out to an older gpu since the current one is 1gb and limits me to 3gb so I'd rather not go in the trouble when ms themselves state a 4 gb limit. Be aware the 32 bit limit is software imposed because of driver incompatibility and you can get around it using pae although you may not be issue free.

You've got 2gb ram and 2gb gpu, and a 4gb limit so you can use all that you have. What is the issue?
