Hello!

 

First, hello and I am really sorry if I am asking a foolish question. I am both new here and haven't had a Desktop PC in years so I am kind of stumped on how to deal with this.

 

I got a new PC recently, you can see the specs below. I looked up a few - rather demanding - games that I intend to play at "Can You RUN It" and the only aspect I hardly ever seem to fulfill is the Dedicated Video RAM. Now, I am - as I said - not extremely well-versed with computers so I had to look that up and found this guide:

 

http://www.pvladov.com/2013/10/increase-intel-hd-graphics-dedicated-video-memory.html

 

I tried looking through BIOS, but I didn't find the necessary option. Does my PC even have it? Or rather, is it possible for me to do it at all without upgrading my PC (I just upgraded the RAM, which was originally only 4 GB). Is it possible that the PC allocates the necessary amount of RAM itself (I heard that there are PCs that do that)?

Sorry again for asking what is probably a dumb question. I would really appreciate it if somebody could tell me what do do.

My specs:

MICROSTAR PROF. I7-4790 1000 B259 AT 1114CZ IAO
Processor Intel® Core™ i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz
Manufacturer Intel
Speed 3.6 GHz
Number of Cores 8

Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750
Manufacturer NVIDIA
Chipset GeForce GTX 750
Dedicated Memory 1.0 GB
Total Memory 3.9 GB

Memory 8.2 GB (ursprünglich 4.1 GB)

Operating System Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit

First off, welcome to Bleeping Computer.

 

Since you have a discrete card the only option is to replace the card with a card that has more video RAM.  If you're looking to play the more demanding games you're probably looking for the 970 line.  You will need a power supply that is 500 watts or better.

Actually I have a 750 Ti and I rarely ever experience lag.

A 750 Ti is a low end gaming card.  When the video card is actually a card you can't upgrade the memory on it.  Also you might look into cards like 960 or more likely a 970 as they would be way faster  than a 750.  Depending on the game, and the quality settings in the game will also very greatly.  If you are experiencing slowness in games try lowering the settings, then if that doesn't work too. You will have to drop the money on a higher end card.

What? I thought an 8400 GS is low end. My 750 Ti can tackle any game at medium-high settings while still being playable. I thought it was a mid-range one.

 

EDIT: I have the 750 Ti Superclocked edition, with both the memory and GPU clocks overclocked a further 100 MHz.

I guess it all depends on what games.  I consider it a low end gaming card, but a mid range video card.  Sorry should have been more specific.

Eh, maybe it's just my ice-age 1280x1024 monitor.

Yeah that makes a huge difference.  It has to do half the work at that resolution.  I am still trying to accept that my two HD 5870s are out of date... along with my phenom II 955. Haha
