What did it say in the manual about this?

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

Ok thats is really stupid.

I hate that manufacturers do that. Like don't they want us to ACTUALLY USE their hardware.

Raising that value won't do shit.  The only reason you have an option there, is so that some stupid games will refuse to start if they "detect" the video card as having less than 512 MB or 1 GB of ram. 

 

The onboard gpu has a default value of 256 MB or whatever value you set there, and can use extra ram from your computer up to something like 4-8 GB of total video card memory. A proper game will detect the total amount and work accordingly. 

 

Also, the gpu processor is too slow to work with more than around 2 GB worth of textures and shaders and crap.... if you play at 720p or 1080p low-medium quality, any sane game won't load more than 1-2 GB worth of textures. 

 

You can try to use dxdiag  (start , search/run , dxdiag ) or hwinfo or some other tools to see the amount the video card can use in total ... here's how it looks on this work computer: 

 

You can see the 128 MB configured in bios (which is still regular ram), and the shared memory (VRAM) of 2004 MB is how much it can also take from RAM if needed... so a total of 2132 MB.
