So what does video memory really do for me?

    I've never really understood what video memory is good for. How would 256 mb vs 512 mb affect me when doing:

    -3D work
    -video editing
    -playing games

    and what if I have an extra external display attached when doing the above task?

    Is there any situation where having more video memory is crucial?

    It all depends on the apps you are running, if you don't know that you need the bigger amount, then you don't.
