Hiya, looking at the information above that i obtained from the Graphics Control Panel, i see to have a max of 1755 MB worth of gpu,
but it only ever uses less than 10% of that amount, when playing an mmorpg, i can get fps of around 30-45 and in high people/lag areas around 2-11fps
i was wodnering if there was any way of being able to increase the amount of graphics mem in use to fully take advantage of the 1.7kmb available to achive higher fps in game.

Short answer: No.
Graphics performance has very little to do with how much memory is present or in use. This is not like system RAM. Your problem is likely that the video interface just isn't up to the task it has been given.

You don't have a graphics card, you have an integrated graphics processor (aka IGP). And IGPs are NOT good for gaming. If you want a decent gaming experience, you'll need to install an actual video card. Overclocking an IGP (or trying to) is just a waste of time. This article will help you to choose a decent gaming card in your price range:

And as stated by LMiller7, the amount of video memory has very little to do with graphics performance. All the graphics specs need to be considered - GPU make/model, core speed, number of stream processors, memory type (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3, DDR5, GDDR5, etc), memory buswidth (64-bit, 128-bit, 256-bit, etc)

adding to what has been said above intel graphics basically are not gaming graphics any pc with intel for graphics suck for gaming. dont overclock an integrated graphics it has little very little use if not no use at all, that maximum ammount of graphics memory is shared from the ram, if the 128MB is over the 1755MB will be used.
u need a gaming graphics card as stated in the above link, but do u have a laptop or desktop?

laptop upgrades are not cheap and are useless, with this laptop u better stick to older games. if u want to play modern games but a gaming laptop or a custom built pc(gaming pc)
