Will do it in a bit. Thank you! So this means that the FULL PERFORMANCE (1024mb) of the VC isn't utilized? Therefore things will get better after I update the driver?

im saying if the card isnt showing full 1gig theres either a hardware issue with ur card or a software issue, before sending it back for an rma, id do all the above and see if that fixes the problem, because the 7700 only comes in 1gig versions and ati and nvidia stopped making 768mb videocards im pretty shur a while ago.

worse case rma it for a new one, but if it works fine, why bother for now.

I experience flickering on some of my games, but sometimes it disappear. I tried AIDA64, it says 1024mb there. But why is it 689mb in dxdiag?

i have no clue, does it say 1024mbs in ur graphic drivers? if so shouldnt be an issue, if ur having other system stability and graphic issues u might have a defective card,

Yes. Is there any other way to check the VC if it's working in its full performance? and check the status other than dxdiag?

no prob. dude mine is hd 7750 and is showing 710mb in dxdiag but never wonder why bcoz its still a 1gb, check it in screen resolution properties it shows 1024mb dedicated memory no need of RMA other than if u have nay kinda prob.

Screen Resolution Properties?







It really is 1024mb!!



How did I forget that! Clearly im still a noob.

I get paranoid now when I see something strange on my hardware/software, because I use to ignore little details and let things die or get fried because of my ignorance. Thank you!

I see :D  I will observe carefully if the flickering goes on. Because it comes and it goes.
