its most likely 'turbocache' ( im suspecting, dont quote me on that) but turbocache for an onboard getup wouldnt make sense as there isnt any dedicated onboard memory... weird. check your motherboard manual?

if you don't mind first thing that might help out is going here. http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem
this way you can have your system listed in your sig as it shows us the full system that you have.

second question I have is how come you want to increase your memory? are you sure you need the extra memory? more doesn't mean better if you aren't using it.

also with video cards you can't really add more memory to them. in the old days some cards you could do that but that time has long gone. the closest you can do now is shared memory so to speak where the video card will reserve some of your system ram. so lets say you have 512MB of system ram your video card though lets say uses 125MB of ram. in effect what this leaves you with is 384MB of system ram and 128MB of video ram. with this in effect it could actually hurt you to have more video ram since it steals from your main ram and then it could leave you short there.

Turbo just means that it will dynamically adjust the amount of ram it will use. Its probably better to just leave it on 128mb since you are running an integrated graphic card and it won't perform any better with extra ram and since it is borrowing it from the system, it might lower your performance as the computer has less ram to store data now.

Oh yeah. Amazingly long sentences FTW.

Superk is wrong. Turbocache is for nVidia However, they both perform the same thing: increase video ram.
