Are you saying that the game needs 128 of video memory and you only have 32mb? Some computers you can allocate the amount of RAM you wish to set aside for video memory. This is done in the BIOS. Keep in mind that when increasing the amount of RAM for video, that you decrease the amount of system RAM

These are the minimum requirements just to be able to open the game up. You probably have better than the minimum requirements, but still not good enough to run the game smoothly on high settings.

What kind of graphics card, and processor do you have? If the graphics are Intel, that would explain the lag issue because Intel graphics are built into the motherboard and don't work that well for gaming. A slower processor can also cause lag in games.

Another thing you should know is that the amount of Video Ram doesn't really represent how fast the card is at all. There are many 256mb cards that are better than 512mb cards. This doesn't mean having a card with more memory makes it worse, but sometimes companies do this to make it seem better, when really it's not.
