Thanks! I've already tried that and set it to 1024 which is my video RAM but it doesn't change anything. Is there someway to check how much memory Wine recognizes?

I have an Nvidia GTX 560 and running the latest propitiatory drivers from Nvidia and I checked lspci what it said about it and I get this:

03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 1201 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
        Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 83b4
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
        Memory at f6000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32M]
        Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
        Memory at ec000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=64M]
        I/O ports at df00 [size=128]

        Capabilities: [600] Vendor Specific Information: ID=0001 Rev=1 Len=024 <?>
        Kernel driver in use: nvidia

Is says something about 32MB, 128MB and 64MB. I don't know what that means, if it doesn't recognize all the memory or if it's just something else.

If I check nvidia-settings it says that I have 1024MB video memory so..

Is there some kind of information on what graphicscard you have when running wine? Maybe thats how WoW checks if you can use the settings!?
