Yes older graphics cards steal some ram. Nvidia calls it turbo cache.
The reason you have to have 1 gb of ram for turbo cache to be enabled is because with less than 1 gb of ram, there wouldnt be much ram left to use.

BTW... i think turbo cache is not enabled when just browsing the web ect... just when playing games.

Here is a link to better explain :

The same thing happened to me. How will effect then overall performance. If one wishes to install Window 7 64 bit, is there then enough memory left over to support the O.S.
