ok, i play video games on my computer , and sometimes it moves slow, even when i dont have alot of precesses running, my computer started out with a sis 760 video card, i bought a ATI Radeon 9250, memory size 256MB,

i have 512 Ram on my PC, but the computer only shows 384, because the onboard video memory, uses up 128 of my ram, . now my question is, ..if i change the onboard video memory to 64 instead of 128, which will make my computer ram use 448, will that help my computer game speed?

and my radeon video card says memory size 250, so does it even mater if i change the video on board memory?

If you have added a graphics card, your on-board graphics should be disabled, freeing up all RAM it has snagged. Usually, it is disabled automatically, but not always. Or, it may have been re-enabled, perhaps to run in multi-monitor mode.

Still, I would add more system RAM to take it up to at least 1Gb.
