Does vista allow video card to use free system ram? My Nvidia 5700FX shows 356MB shared memory with core memory of 256MB.

Is the shared memory feature automatic? or can I set it manually?

I think it just reports incorrectly (you're looking in the dxdiag?). My 7900GT 256mb has 766mb!

I checked the memory under display settings > Adapter tab.

Shared memory is based on the card and your motherboard. You can change it, but it is automatically adjusted to what should be optimal for performance.
