Dedicate more memory to graphics?

I dont have a great graphics card, and it is integrated into my motherboard and uses a percentage of my RAM. I was just wondering if it is possible to dedicate more of my RAM to my graphics since i never use all of it anyway? I know this sounds kind of stupid but my mind wanders on occasion.

Hi GHS and welcome

Actually not the stupid. There are cards (not integrated) that can do that. I fyou tell us what chipset you have we can take a look for you

No tutorial. Just go in the bios and look for the setting. Nothing difficult.

sorry, not to be a pain but i saw no way to adjust anything other than the time and date when i went through the BIOS. I have never made any changes to my bios so im not very familiar with that kind of stuff
