hey, welcome to tech forums

to be honest i do not think this will be possible. although u still do have a gpu (graphics processing unit) i have never heard of this been done before. but still i could be wrong.

EDIT: oh for ur second question, im pretty sure thats done through bios.

<<<Please give me Rep if I have helped you<<<

yes you can dedicated memory by going into the bios but normally it takes it from the physical RAM you have so if you share 32MB with your onboard graphics then it will say 512MB-32MB which is 480MB. Also try powerstrip for overclocking and i will reccoment you to get a graphic card if you are going to be playing games like battlefield counter-strike etc. but not for simple games like old games.
Graphics card: Inno3D Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS @ 640/940 (core/memory)
MB: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 v3.3 F12
RAM: 2 Kingston HyperX DDR2 800MHz (4GB total)
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6320 @variable rates (will fix my fan problem soon and overclock high again)
HSF: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme & Antec Tricool 120mm fan
PSU: Delta Serverpower 550W
HD: Seagate 400GB ST340032AS & Excelstor 80GB (both SATA)
Case: don't know what case it is but it is very crappy
Optical Drive: Lite-on 16X DVD+&- RW DL (died) using a CD-ROM drive until I get a new blu ray burner or whatever i can get


**been afk from tech-forums for a while so this is the updates specs**
