    Hello everyone.

    Re: help needed to increase graphic memory

    With integrated graphics, it doesn't work like that. There is only one kind of memory, and that is your computer's RAM. Both graphics card and CPU access it when they need to. The only difference between "64MB" and "224MB" integrated graphics memory is that either 64MB or 224MB have been set aside so that the graphics driver can decide what to do with that memory, and the operating system doesn't touch it. If the 64 MB is not enough, then the graphics card can access data outside that region just as fast as data within the 64 MB, because it is all the same kind of memory anyway. So setting aside 224 MB will not have much affect at all, except that your Mac will run slower because it has less memory available to all the applications.
    Searching the forums can help you to find your answers more quickly

    Now , some games requires 32mb and i want to achieve it.

    The only option is to get a new Video Card or Graphic Card? What Slot in terms of AGP or PCI-E do you have? What is the rest of your specifications?

    I'm not using any video card. I had intel 945GC motherboard. I Just want to share RAM with onboard graphics. Before this boad i was using intel 865G motherboard in which there was an option to increase onboard graphic to 32mb
    but in this board the option shows only 1mb & 8mb.

    I had one more problem.
    I had installed new version of intel graphic driver.
