The G560 is an entry level/budget laptop. It's not a performance laptop & it's not a gamer. It has weak Intel graphics & the i3 lacks the turbo boost feature - that means no overclocking. Also, it does not have dedicated graphics memory. "Dedicated" means an actual physical memory chip used strictly for graphics. The graphics memory in your system is 100% shared. There might be a base setting in the BIOS (32MB, 64MB, 128MB, etc) but it's still being taken from the 4GB system RAM. And any other graphics memory beyond the base setting is dynamically allocated on an as-needed basis.

If you want to perk up the laptop's performance AND you're running Win8 64-bit, double the RAM amount to 8GB (2 x 4GB). Other than that, tweak your system settings & run a cleaner such as Cleaner-Slim regularly. There are plenty of Win8 Tweak guides out there, Google will find them for you.

Changing dedicated memory for the graphics chip is not overclocking. Overclocking is an entirely different thing.

On g560 laptop which has only an Intel graphics adapter, the amount of RAM allocated to the graphics adapter cannot be increased. It's fixed.

Sorry, not on a laptop and not on an off the shelf desktop either.
Overclocking puts additional stress on most components so that it should only be done on carefully chosen components that are designed for the additional stress. This is why the BIOS' of factory machines lack the needed adjustments to achieve overclocking, the vendors do not want to be held responsible for the damage done by those trying. Finally, laptops would be the least likely to do well due to the additional heat created during overclocking, their cooling systems would not be able to handle it and there is no way to improve their cooling capacity (not to mention battery life).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
