Dont forget games writers show on the packaging the minimum spec required and also the recommended spec. If memeory is a problem then look to upgrade your RAM Scott2009 October 17, 2009 4:03:51 PM If you're running Vista upgrade to SP1 and games may use less memory (it's allocated differently, per process each gets it's own map of video memory). Stupid idea, but they want to have it so one can run multiple 3D apps at once, on different (and/or the same) displays, on single / multiple GPU setups. Due to that idea certain game processes now use [memory] + [map of/to video memory] per process doing 3D. Windows XP SP2/SP3 with DirectX 9.0c actually runs most games faster, looking just as good, and the processes 'usually' use less memory under XP than they do under Vista. Windows 7 with a WDDM 1.1 compliant video driver and DirectX 11 are meant to fix all of this though.
