Default How do I detect how much ram my video card has.

My 9800xt recently died, so I purchased a 9800pro, newegg had it labeled at 128mb, which was fine with me, but I just opened 3dmark03 to check it out and it says 256mb....so I got curious and checked AtiTool, that one says 128mb. So....which one is right? I'm assuming it's a 128mb card.

Well there are two versions of the card, one being 128mb and the other 256mb. A program to help you identify the memory it has is everest or another 3dmark like 01.
