Issue 227: Wrong VRAM size for nVidia GeForce 9600M GT (0x0649)

Reported by Matteo Gaggiano, Mar 1, 2012

The nVidia GeForce 9600M GT with 512MB of VRAM is the card with 
device id 0x0647 and not the card with device id 0x0649.

Looks like there's a somewhat hackish workaround for certain device 
ids in nvidia.c starting at line 1254. Line 1256 forces 0x0649 to 
have 512MB. Can anyone else confirm that 0x0647 is supposed to have 
512MB instead? It's just a matter of changing that one case.

This is a search with the device id.

The video card with id 0x0649 (nVidia GeForce 9600M GT DDR2) hasn't 
512 MB ​​of video ram but 1024 MB, so you could also delete the line 
1405 ("case 0x0649:")
