    Hullo all - Before we start, I know, I know! I need to get a new video card, I know! :eek:

    But is there anyway to allocate RAM resources to Video? Is onboard 4 meg AGP I already have, can I give this more support somehow? :D

    Have 400meg ram - and the biggest prog I run is Diablo 2 - and it runs fine if a bit jerky at times.

    (PS: I have tried a Geforce 32meg card - didn't take, still don't know why - wouldn't get past the 16 colours deal...) :mad:

    Thanks heaps!

    Laters people!

    There is no way to "give" the video card more memory from your main RAM.

    Also the 16 color limit you mentioned about the geforce card sounds like you had the wrong/didn't install the drivers.
