From what i know my card doesnt support directx 11,and it doesnt have 986 of mb either,it has 512 only Blink.Oh and btw this happen on my fresh windows seven installation,is this supposed to happen?,is it good or bad?,beacuse i dowloaded the directx setup to download the latest directx version and it says i already have the latest one,seems strange.
Can anybody help me here Tongue

The 986MB of VRAM part is easy to explain. It's shared RAM.
417MB of your system's RAM will be used as VRAM in case your GPU runs out of actual VRAM.

As for the other question, it clearly states that your GPU is DX10. Look at the DDI.

Shared ram??,if i have 1.5gb and nothing is shared, i mean i got 1.5 gb not 1 gb,and besides that if i go to system tab,it says directx 11,thats what i mean to say,is that wrong???

Yes, shared RAM. The system still uses it. Just that when your GPU do run out, it will use whatever RAM is free, up to a maximum of 417MB.

Oh that. It just says that Windows is capable of DX11 (which is kind of stating the obvious, but it is called dxdiag).

You don't have to worry about it though. Windows is just showing it for the lulz.
The GPU itself won't use system RAM.
Reason 1) Most modern cards don't use share memory anymore (mostly because of the performance gap between VRAM and system RAM).
Reason 2) Unless you have a monitor with 1,900+ by 1,200+ resolution (which you don't), you are not going to run out of VRAM.

Your PC has DX11 API, however your GPU can't use the DX11 paths.
So ignore it.
And Dr_Thrax explained the RAM sharing.

I wish I propelly understood the post.
However, if you've tried updating DX, and it says you're running the latest, then don't update it?
