Just been having a look around my computer and noticed that my GPU is using shared memory (only using 8300 GS atm) it's only 128mb, is there anyway i can change how much memory is shared ?

Here's what it looks like

your card has 128 megs onboard dedicated to it, this is ram that's on the card, the turbo cache just steals system memory when it needs it

the concept is ok as tested and reviewed for entry level cards, not heavy duty gaming ones

having lots of extra system memory helps when pushing a card like this

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
