Post Help determining graphics card memory

Hey, I know it may sound like a simple question but I have checked this on my older computers and I know how to. However if I run 'dxdiag.exe' on this laptop it only tells me the chipsets family, and not the chipset itself. On top of this it tells me that my approximate memory is 1695MB which sounds absurd considering I only paid 400 for this laptop.

Im using an Acer Aspire 5732Z and would appreciate any help you could give me to try and figure this out, sorry if its nooby

In the future, when in doubt, GPU-Z is your friend, especially if you upgrade the card and forget or just want to check out the vitals of your GPU.

It was the comment "Why can't you do this" in all caps. It's comes off as rude.
