Shared System Memory

Hello, i noticed when i installed Windows 7 on my Desk Computer that Win 7 automatic took 767Mb from my Ram and put it on my Geforce 7800GTX 256Mb graphics card. (it was 1023Mb total).
Well my question is cause Win 7 just didn't do it for my quite.. can i share some ram with my graphic card on Win XP Pro ? :)
Thanks in advance.

  1. Windows handles this automatically. It's not something you can manually set.

    I See, does win XP do it? Cause i am not able to see any changes on my graphic card memory in Adapter info :S

    Yes, it has to. Any other memory within the system (graphics ram, sound card ram - yes some do have it, etc...) must be counted within the total physical address space (4GB for 32 bit versions of Windows). You should however be getting the same results within both Windows 7 and Windows XP.
