In the context of an iGPU, system shared memory doesn't mean much outside of it's intended to use that allocated portion of your system's RAM. iGPUs already use system RAM from the get-go so that's why I say it barely matters in this context.

If you can lower the memory allocation specifically for your GPU, that might be beneficial for programs outside of games.

These system specs are low to the point that you will only get the most basic 3D rendered games to run, and likely not well. Older games you may have better luck with. This PC wasn't designed to play games.

On an iGPU a certain amount of RAM is reserved for its use only as it means its ALWAYS available and not fragmented.  If it runs out and has to steal some from system memory then it potentially has to dump stuff from RAM into virtual memory (HDD or SSD) in order to free up RAM to use, causing a huge performance penalty.  I'd imagine if RAM is fragmented that will also cause a lesser penalty compared to just using what is already reserved.

A dedicated GPU can also use system memory if it runs out of dedicated memory also with a performance penalty.

 

Shared memory is basically just a way for things to work rather than crashing if it runs out of GPU memory.
