Erm... I'm not sure how "1.my mac has 8 GB RAM, on windows only 0.5 GB" could happen.

Hard drive space, or RAM? If it's RAM and you're running it in Boot Camp and not a virtual machine, both should be able to access to the 8GB of RAM that it has. (Actually ~3 GB if you are running Windows ~ 32 bit.)

Bootcamp is not vmware. Bootcamp is where you boot the entire machine into Windows. VMware is a virtual environment for running Windows inside OSX. You are not going to get access to your graphics card from within VMware.
