See ive got...
Intel G41 Express Chipset
I am confused what all these mean??
Maximum Graphics Memory = 814.2 MB What does it mean?
Minimum Graphics Memory = 32 MB What does it mean?

Ive only understood the used memory (for e.g 76MB) and dedicated memory (64 MB)

Thanks a lot...

your video card is integrated into the motherboard, which means it doesnt have its own memory, instead it shares your system memory. (the ram your computer uses) what that means is you can change the amount used, the minimum amount is the bare minimum that you HAVE to have to run the video card-which being integrated, you have no choice, the max is how much system memory you can dedicate to your video card. If you purchase a dedicated graphics card, you will no longer need the integrated at all, and that amount will be 0. How much you set it to probably depends on what your using it for, if you dont do a lot of gaming 256-512 meg should be more then adequate for you.

Thats the curse with integrated graphics im afraid-it will slow your system down. A dedicated graphics card-even a bottom of the line one (if you dont do much graphics intensive programs such as gaming) will give you a nice performance boost-if you watch neweggs shell shocker deals, you can usually pick one up for around $10-$20 pretty easy.
