No. Easy answer. The only way you could is if you have onboard GFX that shares your RAM. Even then it is still limited to either 32MB or 64MB.

If your motherboard has an AGP slot or PCI x16, consider getting yourself a good video card instead of the onboard one. Something in the $100 to $200 range is good enough.

If you have a video card with VRAM you can. Or atleast I think you can.

The Video Card is totally seperate from RAM. VRAM is Viedo Ram which is on the Video card. Just like i have 2GB of DDR2 RAM for my system and a whole seperate 256MB RAM for my video that is on my GFX card.
