I have 1GB of RAM in my Windows XP Media Center PC. My system says at the moment it's using 77% of the RAM, when just doing general things like browsing etc.
My current GPU thingy uses 128MB of memory. Sometimes the RAM being used goes up near 90%... is this unhealthy in any way?
What I'm wondering is what would happen if I install this 512mb graphics card? Will it leave my computer with two thirds as much RAM as it had before, so i.e. only 512mb for the O.S. to run on? What happens if I exceed the full 1GB? Or is the memory used by the graphics card different to the computer memory?
Thanks for the help
