That would depend upon which Application or Game you will be running. The Intel HDs use memory sharing with the CPU and the more intense the CPU usage is the less is left for the Video Processor. The max usage is 512MB.

I have the late 2012 mini (16GB ram, SSD) and am using at Dell U2711 (2560 x 1440) connected using the displayport. Looks great, responsive, no issues in iPhoto, iMovie, etc. Mission control, launch pad, etc. works flawlessly.

Sorry to hijack this post but I was looking at getting a Mid 2011 Mac Mini to run with my Dell U3011 30" monitor running at 2560x1600. Are you saying that I can use a Mini DisplayPort from the Thunderbolt port and then go to the DVi or DisplayPort of the monitor to achieve full resolution?

Alan - I believe your Dell (like mine) has a display port out. You can get a cable that has a display port on one end and a mini display port on the other (which plugs into the Thunderbold jack on the mini). Remember to go to the Dell menu to tell it you will be using the display port output (some forget this step!) and your mini will use the higher resolution. I bought this cable from amazon and it worked like a charm (no local retailer carried one):
Best of luck!
