If you have an NVIDIA Card, you can:

1) Open a Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)

2) Type in (and press enter afterwards):

nvidia-settings

3) In the new window, find the place in the list (left hand side) where it says :

GPU <Name of Graphics Card>

4) Click on that and then on the right hand side, it should show the Graphics Card Memory.

If you have an ATI, I don't know what you would do, however you can find out it's name (and then maybe google it) by

1) Open a Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)

2) Type in (and press enter afterwards):

lspci | grep VGA

Then your Graphics Card's name should be outputted.

Ah, if you have an ATI card (or anyother card),

1) Open a Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal)

2) Type in (and press enter afterwards):

lspci -vv

Then scoll to the place where it talks about a 'VGA compatible controller', then in that section find the part where it says 'Region 1: Memory' Then in that section and the other section similiar (ie. Region 2: Memory ) it should say the amount of memory.

Hope this Helps

thanks alot my problem is now solved!
