Sorry, your laptop's not a gamer. The amount of graphics memory isn't the problem, the weak Intel 4500MHD integrated graphics chip is the problem. It's fine for HD video & "normal" tasks, but it's not good for modern gaming. Here's a few clips from a recent review:

"System performance was great in nearly every category except gaming."

"Gaming was limited to past generation games, or heavily tweaked games that wouldn’t task the system that much."

Here's a review of the Intel 4500MHD integrated graphics chip:

"the performance is just on par with the entry level dedicated graphics cards and therefore not suited for demanding games."

If you have a specific game in mind, try running this to see if it will be playable or not:

The bottomline is, if you wanna play games with a laptop & play them well, you need to buy a gaming laptop. They generally cost considerably more than your $900 BestBuy special, but the Alienware Area-51 m15x at only $1100 is a hell of a lot more machine for the money:
