Default Help And Advice Needed Please Folks!!

i have just purchased a new pc , its a middle of the road pc in terms of power , pentium 4 3.2ghz advent t9003 , when i bought it the advert stated 256mb radeon sapphire ati graphics card ,
when i checked the card using the "dxdiag" tool it said it was a sapphire radeon 128mb graphics card but underneath in the approx total memory box it states 256mb.....also i checked properties then settings and that just says sapphire radeon 128mb , finally under device manager and clicking on display adapters it showed 2 graphics cards both 128mb , so am i correct in saying that my machine is running twin cards ?????
any help gratefully received..thanks

No you are not running 2 cards. Under device manager, the 2 you see are 2 separate configurations of the same card. Total memory probably means that you have 128MB memory on the card plus 128MB RAM allocated to it.
