Default Re: 169.12: Wrong detection amount of video memory?

The amount of memory reported includes system memory; from the `nvidia-settings` help text:

This is the overall amount of memory available to your GPU. With TurboCache(TM) GPUs, this value may exceed the amount of video memory installed on the graphics card. With integrated GPUs, the value may exceed the amount of dedicated system memory set aside by the system BIOS for use by the integrated GPU.
