    Any video card has dedicated video memory. The only time it wouldn't be is if the video is integrated and then it may share some of your system memory.

    The reason the 8800 gt is so great right now is the price to performance ratio. It is quite cheap compared to the gtx with nearly the same performance. In a nutshell.

    Not completely true; some video cards will use 256 onboard memory and then make use of system memory if the onboard is not enough. Asus made some of these type cards.

    Note this is NOT a good way to go if you plan on gaming with the card.
