Default NVIDIA Vanta (8 MB)

Display
Video Adapter NVIDIA Vanta LT (8 MB)
3D Accelerator nVIDIA Vanta


So this means that this is only a 8MB graphics card which means my four year old 11 MB one is better which is surprising. Kind of a dumb question but can someone confirm that this graphics card is indeed 8 MB?

The Nvidia Vanta is usually 16MB, it is a PCI VGA card.

Actually, configurations come in 4 to 16 MB.

More memory does not necessarily make a card better. (e.g. GeForce4 Ti 4200 64 MB vs. Voodoo5 6000 128 MB)

I am quite sure that is 8MB because I have that same card sitting at home in my desk.

Providing that it is AGP

Say's right on the case 11 MB allocated to video memory. And yes I know it's old but if I could just get a better video card in it this thing would be good for some of the slightly older games.
