Default 6200 Tc Pci-e

Hi everybody! I've bought this video card and I had a problem: all of the games that I play (under cedega) said that my memory is too low. Infact from nvidia-settings I see that 6200 has 64MB Ram but win said 256...
Now I cant play anymore... but when I had nvidia 5200 agp everything works fine.
I've the last driver...and kernel 2.6.13...
Any ideas? Thanks

Your videocard has 64MB of videomemory, the other 192MB it can use is borrowed system memory. The idea is similar to AGP using which system memory could be used as video memory too without asking permission to the cpu.

I don't know how cedega detects the amount of memory but your card can really use 256MB although the access of system memory is a bit slow.
