Computer HP Compaq-Presario SR5710F Vista SP2 desktop

 

My friend wants to install simraceway: https://www.simraceway.com/

One of the system requirements is a minimum ov512MB video ram

He has a NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430: how can I tell what it has for video ram? 

 

And he tells me he needs steam

How do we get that or does it come with the simraceway install?

 

I'm sure you can see I'm not a gamer but I'll help him if I can.

Steam can be downloaded here.

 

Tech specs for your Nvidia 6150SE Motherboard are here.

 

I believe onboard GPU's, such as the one on the GeForce 6150SE board, share their memory with the rest of the computer. Meaning if you have 4 GB of RAM installed, your GPU can't exceed 4 GB. That's just an example, an onboard GPU does not use that much.

 

CPU-Z is a program that will indicate how much VRAM you have. Download it here. Just scroll down and click 'Download'. You do not need an account for CPU-Z.
