Anyone know a piece of software that will let me know how much memory has been given to a device?

Got a 32bit Windows machine with 4gb of memory in it and when I add 1 7600 GT card it will show 3gb of memory, but when I put in another 7600 GT card it shows 2gb of memory.

Curious of how the memory is being allocated.

Everest will give you mem addresses for device higher mem functions and you can do the math if you can figure out hex.... :)

That said, I don't think that hardware uses system mem resources outside of the highmem for device control, & the software used to control it. (I could be wrong of course......).

Is it possible that the himem location of the second card is conflicting with your mem controler?

Have you checked device manager to see if there is a conflict?

hrm, this doesn't answer your question.. but to the experts:

would aperture size in the BIOS have anything to do with this?
