Adapter RAM is the amount of dedicated video memory.

It applies to both on-board video adapters which have dedicated RAM & also to add-on video cards which fit into a PCI slot.

Graphics memory is reported differently depending on your hardware & version of Windows. If you have an actual graphics card, it will have it's own dedicated memory. The most common cards these days have 512MB, 1GB, 1.5GB, or 2GB. Older cards may have 64MB, 128MB, or 256MB.

Integrated graphics (built into the motherboard) either has a small amount of dedicated memory, then "borrows" more from system RAM, or it has no memory of it's own & borrows it ALL from the system RAM.

Graphics memory is reported differently in Vista/Win7 than in other versions of Windows. This will explain:
