Must go and catch Logic, for he seems to have gone out the window again.

Look, see, whether on board or not a video card is able to do more things
with more RAM. If the system has say 1 TB of it, and is only giving 1 MB to
the onboard video card, surely it will not mind giving some more to the
onboard video?

The OP want to know how to give more memory to the onboard video. He may
well be happy to live with the results this brings.

Not everyone can drive fast cars, not even certain directors of finance
companies. Its a question of money after all. Please remember that not
everyone has the ability to purchase what you have, or that they wish to.
