  1. well what are you using it for?

    the amount of vRAM doesn't actually indicate how powerful the card is.
    if you are gaming, you need at least 256mb and then will only be able to play at low resolutions.

    if you just want video playback though, then you dont really need any vRAM as shared system memory will do the job.
  2. These days, I wouldn't get anything less than 256MB of memory.
    Here is a good card... I have used many of these over the years.
