    Ok, I have been to several other forums asking about this, but nobody could help me.
    I just discovered that the RAM used for the video card on my Mac mini is shared with system RAM.
    So my question is, is there any way to share more RAM with the video card?

    Not in OS X. And yes we've been over it.

    Not in OSX. Boot into Windows and the OS will dynamically allocate more or less RAM to the graphics system as required.

    You're going to need to get Windows XP. No clue if Leopard will support other operating systems.

    I'm quite sure it has been done but its not easy. Something about editing Windows to make it look like XP, and that aint easy. But as I say, I may be totally wrong :eek: .
