    That's strange, I guess different chipsets 'chew' up different amounts of
    memory OR you have your DVT(?) (video-card memory/aperature) set to 256MB?
    I have mine set to 128MB, in top:

    Mem: 8039576k total, 6187304k used, 1852272k free, 696k buffers

    What type of memory are you using and what is your DVT set to?
