Yes, if you set it to 1 Mb you probably can not go above 640x480 24bit
colour in X, I think 1024x768 max but only at 8 bit colour, so 8 Mb is
As far as I know it's best to leave the VideoRam setting in xorg.conf
commented out, In most cases the driver detects the memory X can use.
The setting influences how much memory X uses for video modes, setting
it too high can cause problems.
