Have you installed the VMware Tools? Usually that will take care of it.

If you are using VMWare, then the graphics card on the host machine itself makes no difference, as the one which your guest OS detects is the VMWare graphics adapter.

The VMWare website should give you the guide on how to get it working (although officially, VMWare doesn't support debian...).

The following might be of use, but having little experience with VMWare myself, I'm not sure as to how good a guide it is.

As an alternative, Virtual Box (http://www.virtualbox.org/) does work with Ubuntu, and as such, *should* work with Debian, although again, I've not tried this myself.
