PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: w2k
Problem Hardware Make & Model:VGA Card vs Shared Graphical Memory



Hi there!

I would like to know which one is the better for me.
I work with tones of images (photos an stuff)

The thing is that a certain computer company gave me a "new" computer because mine was damaged and they could not fixed it.

My old one had:

CPU : AMD 1600+
Memory: 512
Graphics: SiS 730S with shared memory (8-32 Mb)


The new one that they replaced with has :

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 1.9 GHz
Memory: 512
Graphics: ATI Mobile Radeon 7 with 16 Mb

Notice that i can no longer get 32 Mb to the graphic card.
I wonder witch one is best for me because i work with some real "heavy" images.

Thanks

If by heavy you mean, big, real 3D, step into a world of your own graphics, then you need a pretty beefy videocard. If it's for 2D only, you don't. Most of the memory on the card is used for 3D environment maps, games so to say.
