Windows 7: More memory to graphic card

Windows i7 920

Windows 8 Pro x64
 
 

Maybe this is the GPU he had. I did some Google searching. Seems like a newer GPU to me. Based on information given on the page, I assume a mobile graphics card such as a mobility Radeon could be installed which would yield better performance and not need to take from the RAM.

I guess so.

The GPU still can't handle GTA4 though.

Intel graphics uses what Intel calls "Dynamic Video Memory Technology" (they need to update this page),

Graphics — Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) - How much video memory do I have?

which as I understand it it uses a fixed amount up to 128 MB taken from system ram, and based on total system ram. I also have a feeling their "up to" figure is using something like this,

Video Memory Virtualization - A Brief Guide

to come up with the 1.70 GB total mentioned here (scroll down to "3D Features Comparison"),

You can play that game, but quality and framerate are another question entirely. That chipset is not recommended for gaming by gamers. Intel GMA 4500M is used mainly for business work, movies, some photoshopping, etc. You will be able to play basic games just fine, but once you hit the newer, graphics intensive games, you are likely to lag, skip, or even freeze.

Well if u want to increase memory go to the bios,search for video memory option and set it to how much ever u want but there is a certain limit to do so.

You can increase memory on a vid card?????
I do not think so.
Windows definitely allocates system ram to work with vid card.
You can tell a puters user to be restricted to ram, thereby negating the pagefile, you can disable HT in bios and get a little system ram boost. You can get a thumbdrive and use it for ReadyBoost which can help.
Over clocking your vid card we'll get you better card performance, but you could ruin the card.
AGP cards used to have an apeture setting you could adjust, is yours an agp card?

p.s. Im trying to run GTA SA smoothly but it lags :s
CanURunIt says I need a better gpu but these information confuse me! I have it all!

Video RAM 128 MB 1.7 GB 3D Yes Yes Hardware T&L Yes Yes Pixel Shader version 2.0 4.0 Vertex Shader version 2.0 4.0
The simple answer is no. And even if you could share more RAM for it, it wouldn't help you with such a weak video card.
