How do I get a readout of my video card power (Mb's)?
I've clicked around my system attributes and it just comes up with "Nvidia GeForce GTS 250", see there's no mention of its Mb horsepower.
I think the card is 512Mb out of the factory but the shop told me they were adding more Mb's when they fitted it (I think they mentioned 300Mb) and I just want to find out how much.

By video card power, I'm assuming you mean dedicated RAM? In that case, there's no specific location to find that readout. Sometimes the display properties (Right click on Desktop > Properties, click the settings tab) will tell you if you're lucky. However, the most common way is to either Google the card you're using, or use a third part application (I think RealTemp or RivaTuner are some of the better programs out there).

Also, not sure what the factory meant by adding more MB's. I don't believe that is possible for graphics cards, only RAM on your PC.

Hope that helps
