    Hi, i own a dell latitude d620 with a nvidia quadro nvs 110m (256mb) and i was wondering if i can allocate somehow some of my RAM or VRAM to my nvidia card, since some games are better off with 512 MB.

    doesn't hurt to ask.

    Yeah, I don't think that's technically possible, but even for the sake of argument if you were able to allocate more RAM to your video card, the processor wouldn't know what to do with it. There likely wouldn't be enough pipes for the extra RAM to really be used to begin with.

    VideoRAM is at least 10 times faster in processing as RAM in use by your CPU. So dedicating CPU Ram to your video is quite pointless.
