Only with those 1GB RAM and 2GB benefits from ReadyBoost. ReadyBoost only helps your programs open faster and make it run a bit faster

I don't need more video memory, I need MORE RAM so I asked if video memory could be used as RAM when playing games that don't require much video memory but require more RAM memory.
No, only the video card (actually the system itself) can use shared system memory, if the motherboard allows it, you can`t take memory from the video card.

You need a better cpu (a Celeron is a piece of junk) and add more memory, if possible.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

And again the usable RAM size changed, now it is 3,42 not anymore 3,50 GB.
Hmm... could that be because of enabling write caching on my USB flash drives? I enabled write caching because it speeds up file transfer speed. I think that when I enabled caching on one of my flash drives, It required a system reboot and the size of usable RAM changed to 3,42 GB. But the write caching speeds up a lot the transfer speed, at least for me, the same file was copying 4-6 MB/s with write caching disabled, and 13-20 MB/s when write caching enabled.
Any ideas?
