Thanks Ian. I take it lspci lists it properly too?
yes, This is the output of lspci -vvv

Am I reading that wrong, or does your card actually have 256 MB of RAM?
No my card has 512 MB RAM.

When i open "NVIDIA X Server Settings", and then select "GPU 0- (Geforce 8600 GT)" i get the Graphics Card Information
and there i can see that i have 512 MB. Just like on the box where the card was in when i bought it :)

i don't understand the information below

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 8600 GT
...
Region 0: Memory at fd000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
[size=16M] Region 1: Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable)
[size=256M] Region 3: Memory at fa000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable)
[size=32M] Region 5: I/O ports at bc00 [size=128]
...
