After reading the following tutorial;
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/identifying-and-upgrading-ram/

i did what it said in it about going Start>Programs>accessories>Systemtools>System information

and it said i have got 1,024.00MB RAM (1gb)

but when i goto control panel>system it shows i have 768MB RAM.

Is this a bad thing that two things are showing different sizes of RAM?

Your video adapter is probably sharing the ram.

oh ok, thank you for your reply Enthusiast.

I Have another Question about RAM though..

When looking at the requiements of a game, say it says Minimum of 512mb Ram, does this mean i have to have a minimum of 512mb RAM TOTAL or Free ram?

I believe it means total, but games usually work better the more ram you have.
