Quick question about Video Memory


Alright, I used an old video card to set up my Red Hat 9 system, then put my GeForce FX5200 card in to install the drivers.

Problem, the old card's settings are still in the XF86Config file.

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "S3"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "S3 Trio64 (generic)"
VideoRam 2048


I changed the "S3" just like the nVidia readme said to:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "S3 Trio64 (generic)"
VideoRam 2048

But what about the VideoRam? it read 2 meg, and I have 128 meg. does that matter at all? should I change that to reflect my card?

Mike
