Can anyone help me to disable shared video memory on the EVGA nForce 750i FTW mobo? I have an EVGA 8800GT and i checked using "dxdiag" and found that I had 1777mb Approx. memory and I know my card only has 512mb dedicated video memory. So I went to task manager and found out that I only had 3069mb total physical memory. So I know that about 1024mb of my ram is being used as shared video memory. How do I disable this so I can get my 4gb back on the EVGA nForce 750i FTW mobo? any help will be appreciated.

Specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (Overclocked: 3600mhz)
EVGA nForce 750i FTW
EVGA e-GeForce 8800GT (Overclocked: 700mhz, 1728mhz, 1000mhz)

First off, if you have 4 gigs of ram, don't worry about one gig being used for something, your not likely to use all of that ram anyway, second, for some reason my 5500gt claims to have a little over a gig of memory, not sure why, but I'm not concerned, because not even Crysis stresses my measly 2GB or RAM. If your not doing 3D animation or video editing, it isn't an issue, and if you use premier, when cs4 comes out, you'll need that memory for your gfx card.
