should still leave the system with the full 512mb.

Yes it is intregated.... All of the parts to this 'puter are original. I need to add/upgrade a couple of items, mostly due to the Vista requirements. I need to learn more about graphic cards.... This will be the second item, after 1 gig RAM chip, that I will install.
This is a HP presario .... desktop.... It does work fine but a little upgrading will do wonders. My Vista Ultimate is using the 'for best performance' mode right now. When I break the 'seal' on this baby, I will look at the whole inside to really understand the 'guts' of a box. I also have an old box that I will play with, some day. Playing meaning upgrading items, like the motherboard and processor. LOL, moderization, is another term I could use to describe the old box. My sisters were the users of this box. It started out as a rental...
But...Colin, how much knowledge do have with graphic cards???? For Vista could I just install a removalable card to meet Vista's needs????
Joseph tell me more..more..more.... (Billy Idol.... lol)
