    Are you talking the driver or a card with different amounts of gRam? I would think, since your OS's are independent, you can install whichever driver you wish.

    Go ahead, don't be frustrated. Drivers can always be rollback on Windows 8.

    Your graphics driver is determined by the hardware you have. If you have a 512 nvidia card that is the only driver that will work.. You cant just install a 1 gig driver and expect to have 1 gig video. Not going to happen. The right driver is the only one that will work.
