Onboard video and memeory is the memory built into your board to handle graphics and audio if you dont have an appropriate card its there so that if you break your pci slots or something like that you have the ablity to start the computer and possibly find out whats wrong. Are you actually joking.

onboard video uses shared system ram to give you accelerated graphics. this means it takes a chunk of your system ram, and dedicates it to the display. as you increase the amount of ram video, it decreases your available system ram.

if you want to do any kind of gaming, get a video card. it will offer much better performance, and allow you to have all your ram run your system better.
