I recently upgraded my computer a bit (Increasing RAM, new processor). I'm a PC gamer so it sort of felt like a necessity. Some of my game still seemed to be lagging so I decided to check I tested my PC with a game I frequently play, Assassin's Creed 3. It said my computer wasn't up to the recommended setting and when I checked the details, everything was marked with a green check to show that it passed except for one thing. The one detail that didn't pass was my dedicated video RAM. It said I only have 512 MB and that the recommended was 1024 MB. Is there any way I can increase it? I'm sort of decent when it comes to computers so please try and explain as much as possible. Thanks in advance!
Here are my PC specs if they're needed.

Processor: AMD A10-5800K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 3.80 GHz
RAM: 22.0 GB (21.4 GB usable)
OS: Windows 8 64-Bit

✔ Best Answer
Afraid not. The Graphics are incorporated into the CPU and the amount of RAM it uses is fixed.

If this is a laptop there is nothing you can do about it.

If it is a desktop you may be able to install a PCIe graphics card and disable the on-board graphics.

This will release the 512 Mbs of RAM back to the main RAM as the graphics card will have its own memory.
