Dedicated is physically built onto the chipset. Shared uses system meory (ram) and your total is 1695.

You cant change what is built onto the card. If you have a desktop (doubtful) you can add a graphics card. Otherwise your stuck with it.

The wattage of the PSU is important. Most better graphics cards neeed a lot of power and I doubt that your stock PSU can handle that. It may not even have a spare lead for it. Check into the manual of your PC (it should be available on-line at your PC's manufacturer site) how many Watts the PSU has. You will most likely have to change the PSU when you want to install a graphics card with any reasonable power.

Easier to pop the side panel off and read the label on the side of the power supply, then either look it up or post it here and we can look it up.

Hmm, would not be easier for me. Crawling under the desk, unplugging the wires, dragging the box out and opening it would be too much for an old man - LOL.

Checking on the web is a lot easier.

Not if the manufacturer is anything like Dell or HP where all they list in the specs and/or manual for the power supply is what its total wattage is, nothing about amps or anything else.

Unless it is a custom build and the builder provided a detailed list of what was used, the only way to know what is inside as far as the power supply goes is to look at it.

Well, I have both Dell and HP boxes and they have the info in the manual. And amps come with the Wattage - no need to worry about that. But everybody has his own ways.
