I was wondering what will happen if I continuously load textures to the video card without disposing of unused ones. Will the video card start swapping the old memory out and be able to swap back in when the old textures are referenced again or do I need to write code to do memory management myself? Is there a performance boost in doing it either way?

Thanks,

Max
