    Hi i am soon going to purchase a dell inspiron e1505 from my friend. However i am still trying to figure out what kind of video card the laptop has! I have checked several different sources, including the BIOS of the computer itself, vista device manager, and the ati radeon program installed on the laptop. I have gotten extremely conflicting results! the BIOS says 128mb, the ati radeon program says 256mb and the vista device manager says something weird like 841mb. I am going to ignore the device manager because it makes no sense. What i have determined is that it seems that its 128mb but theres some sort of hypermemory which seems to make it 256mb, could someone please help me to understand how hypermemory works, and what i really want to know is, will i be able to install a game that requires 256mb, or is the extra 128mb the hypermemory adds simply overclocking it. I anxiously awaiting your answers.

    Thanks guys-Brendan
