Hey guys, im rly confused, my alienware 17 has a 880m, and when GPU-Z tells me that its a 8GB GPU, although, CPU-Z tell me that i have 4GB available. But thats not the main problem… shadow of mordor was just released, and the hd content needs 6GB OF VGA RAM. Will my GPU fry, or will it use 8GB ??

HELP!

Thank you :p

No game requires 6GB of VRAM, the game requires 4GB as minimum memory which is the RAM that the pc uses not the VRAM which i the Video memory on your graphic card. You will be alright with that game :)

Shadows of Mordor's system requirements were vastly overblown. Most likely whoever gathered the info just copied the developer's workstation specs. Most looks at it I've seen are that it uses around 3ish GB peak with the HD textures and stuff installed.

Uh wow, that is not as i expected, guess i'll have to take that back then. The game uses 5.5gb with that ultra hd pack and it's insane. But still you'd be fine op as you have 8GB.
