I have a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, a Windows 10 operating system, a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-7400 processor. So I am very new to pc gaming and all of that, and have just recently bought a pc about 3 days ago. On pc, I was really looking forward to playing rainbow six siege, since I had played it on Xbox for a while, and I downloaded it on steam. So I get into a game and start messing with my graphics settings ,and  I see that I only 128 MB of video memory while Rainbow Six Siege needs around 1.5 GB of dedicated video memory for worth while gameplay. I have tried so much to try and allocate at least  2 GB of my available 8GB Ram memory to dedicated video memory, but nothing has really worked at all. Please, I need help with this.

not system memory, it's your GPU memory


You should have either  3gb or 6 gb GDDR5  memory on your video card



Are you sure your video cable is plugged into your GPU or is it in the on board video?

i built a system and put a gtx 1050 ti card in it for my son, he took it home and had the same problem.  we then troubleshoot over the phone because he lives 45 miles away. and he plugged the video cable into the motherboard and not the gtx card by mistake.
