When you have integrated graphics the OS dynamically allocates however much is needed from your RAM. The screenshot is just however much it had at the time. But it might have a little trouble running Overwatch.


I legitimately don't know anything about PCs
I did buy Overwatch and it doesn't run
You can see my topic about it right here

Dude 5 years is not that long

True, but that was a very weak system new, 5 years ago.

You change the setting in your bios for how much memory your fake video card is allowed to steal from your system.
Your computer is not powerful enough to play games. Your computer has about the same graphical power as a ps2.
You need a dedicated video card. This is a piece of hardware designed for gaming. A gtx 1050 is about the equivalent of an xbox 1 and costs $150. You'll need that to play anything made in the last decade.

You can get a GTX 1050 or RX 560 for as little as $100. Heck, even the $70 GT 1030 would be a huge improvement over what you have now. Start saving.

Here's how you install a graphics card:

oh wait herpa derpa troll s***post troll troll s***post am I doing it right

I mean, it has to be a troll post. The guy got his answer at least a few times up to the point you answered and continued to respond only to the trolly posts instead of the serious ones. That's classic troll behavior. I don't even know why this topic isn't locked yet.

Apparently blatant trolling is fine but accidentally post a referral link (because you copied it from a newsletter instead of the site URL directly) to a game that's on sale because you wanted to talk about the game is worth an instant 3KL.

Mother f***er YES. YEAH. I'm stupid for not knowing anything about pc's huh? It's my fault huh that I didn't even buy the f***ing hunk of s*** it was a goddamn christmas gift I got from someone else.

I'M SORRY for not f***ing knowing anything when I never even use the s*** to game
I am so so so sorry that I came here looking for help because I don't know anything about PC gaming, ok?

Fine, I get it everyone thinks I'm stupid and few people are actually interested in helping.

I'll close the f***ing topic. Thanks for nothing. just like that DAMN Overwatch thread I linked. Why is no one on this site interested in helping people? f***, man
