Video RAM - how much do you really need? - Video RAM - how much do you really need?

"The first 3D accelerator add-in boards (merely called graphics cards today) appeared on the market over ten years ago and whilst the processing power and raw capabilities of the main chip have increased beyond all expectations, the amount of memory on the circuit board has increased rather more slowly. However, the latest games are becoming ever more demanding on the resources a PC has to offer. So if you're out to buy a new graphics card, what do you do - buy the one with the most memory, the fastest memory, the latest memory type? We delve into the mysteries of video RAM and take a brief look at the different types and what it gets used for, before we examine just how much your graphics card really needs."
