Re: What is shared video memory?
Basically, the video card sucks up the main system RAM as opposed to having it's own. Most dedicated cards have their own RAM on the card. If it says it's shared, it's using the main RAM as opposed to having it's own.
Shared is a bad thing, because instead of being able to use that memory for the system, it's going to the video card when the video card could have it's own.
