Memory and Display Resolution by Travis Swift
I take it the formula to work out how much video memory you need is: Desktop resolution width x Height x Color Depth in bits / 8 (to convert bits to byte) i.e. 800x600x8/8 (for 800x600px, 256 colors ie 8bit) 1024x768x16/8 (for 1024x768px, 16.7m colors ie 16bit) Is this correct?
