    Suppose I have a PC and is not convenient to open the case and look
    at the innards.
    I can find out what model GPU there is fairly easily, but that does
    not determine how much memory is on that graphics card.
    Now I look at a PC with Centos and KDE desktop.
    I run the "KInfoCenter" utility, then select "PCI"
    (Unfortunately I can not paste and copy from this stupid thing)
    I see some information for a Geforce 7100GS.
    There are three lines starting with "Memory at"
    The first and third lines say non-prefetchable size=16M
    The second line says prefetchable size=256M
    256 MB sound like the amount of memory on this card.
    Would this be what to look for?

    I can not see anything in /proc directory that has this information.
