Technically its the ammount of memory to display an image on the screen
but in theory its the ammount of memory on the video card or if its onboard the ammount of memory from the main memory shared or dedicated to dealing with displaying images and video

umm this is in the wrong forum.
anyway like said above it is quite simply how much ram the card has, eg: 128mb, 256mb. buying a card is not just about this though
