Video RAM and 'normal' RAM do not combine (as far as I know)

I've got 128Mb Video RAM and 1024Mb PC2700 DDR RAM.... I LOVE it!

nice . Yea, i have 256 video with that 9700 pro card and only 512 ddr . But, together it runs quite nicely... its a monster for what i am using it for . And that is the way i will always keep it.. lol. I DO need to get more ram, right after i buy that second monitor.. heh. What do you think, ram first (upgrade to 1 gig) or second monitor first? K, cya.

...and it depends what kind of OS you're running. The DualProcessor on the Mac makes even look the SGI look slow when it comes to rendering. A fast graphic card enhances moving complex scenes...
