    Reputable vendors will tell you is the card uses shared memory in the
    product description. These appear not to use "shared" memory:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...+X1300&Submit=ENE&N=0&Ntk=all&Go.x=17&Go.y=27

    As for the x1050, most here appear to use "shared" memory. When you see
    something like "512 meg, 128 meg on board", that tells all. The extra memory
    will be "shared" (stolen) from your main memory.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=X1050&Submit=ENE&N=0&Ntk=all&Go.x=13&Go.y=28

    Also note the large price difference between the X1050 and the X1300 cards.
    You get what you pay for.
