Default 8600GT+100.14.19 wrong amount video memory

Hi,

there seems to be some kind of mis-detection:
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce 8600 GT (G84) at PCI:4:0:0 (GPU-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 524288 kBytes
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 60.84.38.00.00
(II) NVIDIA(0): Detected PCI Express Link width: 16X

but the card claims in its bios screen/on its package/on the manufacturer's site that it only has 256MB.

The reported amount of 'Memory' includes local video memory and system memory available for use by the GPU, i.e. it reflects the overall amount of memory available to the GPU.

ok, that makes sense. Thanks for the answer.
But could that be added to the documentation?
