bitzaxp90, welcome to the Seven Forums.

This is where that 2.2 GB of video memory is coming from,

As for using it, all things considering that is the last thing you want to happen as it can and will cause slowdowns as it won't be as fast as the dedicated memory on the video card. The only way to go from 512 MB of memory on the card to 1 GB is to buy a card that has 1 GB on it.
